    Oh well that's a shame that you are not still there! :lol: Agree though the weather makes all the difference, bet it was busy down by the water!

    Well on Sunday we went to use the spa at the Christchurch Harbour Hotel so didn't mix with crowds! Walked along the river yesterday, past the priory, past the church and along the quay to Captains Club for a drink and it wasn't too busy at all.

    I knew you couldn't possibly have meant you were flying to New Zealand for the weekend so I jumped on Google Maps and found this place.

    Oh FD, I can't even describe how that tasted....believe me I could've managed another! Christchurch is around 11/2 to 2 hours driving from my house, I really should go more often. Though there was so much traffic heading that way on Sunday the journey took almost twice as long, and it was very, very hot...hence all the traffic heading to the beautiful coastline! I live close to the sea, around 10 minutes walk, but it's just not as beautiful.

    But oh so worth it once you got there! Next time leave at 230am and avoid all the traffic. :D

    Hahaha, it'd be a cooler journey too! It looks like I said it takes 11 hours to get there....I'd certainly be staying more than one night if it did!

    Oh goodness, I'm not sure which looks more lovely - the bed or the souffle!

    Beautiful photos, Mairead. The soufflé looks delicious! I sure hope it was. :yes: The crab look like Dungeness that are available here (mostly on the west coast, but they ship them in to other areas of the US).

    Thanks for sharing the holiday with us! (You take the best holidays)!!
