I hope you had a great Christmas. We did. Like every year we had a BBQ with our Dutch friends.Above a snippet from a great Christmas present from the garden of my lovely neighbour
Our holiday will be later in the next year. I go back to work tomorrow. I still have lots of days off in between which I spend walking and reading. We had a walk on Brighton Beach.
I looked up when walking and was hypnotised when staring in the eyes of this cute dog ;) Luckily I didn't bump into something.
We had another walk at Governors Bay, with a young friend who came to us for a visit.
Our young friend visited Margaret Mahy when he was little. She lived in Governors Bay and we found this plaque on the track. She was a famous children's book writer who won the international Christian Anderson Medal for children's literature.
Afterwards we dropped off our friend and drove back through the city centre and visited the brand new Margaret Mahy Playground
The 4 meter wide slide is very popular. Fun to climb up as well and there is a tunnel with a little slide on the side.
The playground was developed with the children of Christchurch, for the children of Christchurch.
After all that walking it was time to pick some berries in the garden, wash them and eat them with a sprinkle of sugar. Life is good sigh
