Horseshoe Lake Update

It has been a while since I put up a progress picture.
Today I see a new series of aerial pictures of Christchurch have been released...so I checked up on the one for our area.

This is the view towards our house which is on the rights side of the empty red zone.
- I left the river in to the right to orientate myself!






I posted a similar drone shot a while ago - but to see how it looked in 2011 go to

You can look at all the areas of Christchurch as a 360 aerial panorama too.

Today is Alex's 25th Birthday.  How fast the quarter century has gone !  What a lovely young man he has become.  Love him to bits and we have had breakfast out and the cake is ready for this afternoon.  :)
And I found a safe picture to use off his facebook profile!!!

Christchurch from the Air

I still love seeing Christchurch in all her beautiful glory despite the scars the earthquakes have left on the buildings and landscape.  This footage has appeared this week and it made me smile.... I love that we get to explore all of this. Home.

A nine crane day

One thing about working in the central city is seeing the rebuild happening from the classroom windows every week.  Today the view to the mountains in the West, shows nine cranes. They have been a constant feature of the landscape for so long I hardly notice them but as a symbol of the rebuild their presence shows us the work going on. 

Progress!
