Visiting Christchurch #2 -- Post 410 of (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

I'm posting old (and sometimes new) family photographs from my collection on Wednesdays, but they won't be wordless posts like others do - I am incapable of having a wordless post.

Here are some of the most precious (to me) images from my Seaver/Leland photograph collection:

In March 2010, we visited Australia, New Zealand and Fiji on a three week Grand Circle Travel Tour to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary, and I took some photographs with my trusty digital camera.

1)  While in Christchurch, we took a bus tour of the local area on Tuesday, and stopped at a beach south of Christchurch, where Linda got her feet wet in the Pacific Ocean.  It's a long way to Antarctica, and we will probably never get closer! 

2)  There was a big rock pile on the beach, perhaps 50 feet high.

3)  I climbed up the rock pile and pointed off towards Antarctica:

4)  The view looking the other way (Linda is sitting on the bench in the center of the photo):

5)  And the view of the beach from the rock pile:

More on our New Zealand visit in coming weeks.

Unfortunately, I've lost the memories of all the details of this vacation - I know what we saw but can't remember what we were told.  Fortunately, I found my Facebook photo albums from our 2010 vacation with pictures and some captions so all is not lost.  I found that I posted very few photos from this vacation on Genea-Musings.
