|Punts outside the Antigua Boat Sheds (since 1882)|
on the Avon River, Christchurch
The punts have just begun operating again on a reduced river loop.

from the Hospital Bridge, Riverside
The bridge is impassable, dressed with the ubiquitous fluorescent orange cones and temporary fencing. But you would never know from here.

Rolleston Avenue up-river through the
Botanical Gardens, Hagley Park
My mother's room in Christchurch Public Hospital's aptly named Riverside Block overlooks the Avon and Botanical Gardens; north-facing for all day sun.
Fortunately, I had my phone with me to capture these, but it does have its limits. I hope you get the idea. Easter Sunday in Christchurch was a thing of beauty, with the promise of renewal.
(Although we have just had yet another aftershock - best not get ahead of myself!)
Happy Easter x
