I went into Christchurch this week to see the rebuild and I’ll show you that in my next post. I don’t know why but, for some bizarre reason, I imagined that the Avon River that runs through the central business area would be full of rubble. I couldn’t have been more wrong – the Avon River lives on.

It was a bright shiny day in Christchurch and the river looked wonderful. It was so good to see it again and the ducks that are so much a part of the Garden City. So for today’s post, here is a quick snap of the Avon River as it meanders its way through the city.

You’ll be surprised to see in tomorrow’s post how much rebuilding has been going on and how Christchurch is nearly back on its feet.
