A leisurely boat ride along the river was the perfect ending to our trip.
Christchurch is a very English looking city, with lots of gorgeous Tudor and Gothic architecture.
A wonderful interactive sculpture garden at the Dyslexia Association office.
We didn’t witness much damage from the recent earthquake as the city had been mostly cleaned up and we didn’t visit the most affected suburbs. Many old stone buildings, though, were missing steeples, spires and chimneys. We experienced an aftershock on our last night there, which was very unnerving.
