Christchurch, New Zealand – September 1999

G’day everyone!

It’s almost spring here in Christchurch. In fact, the blossoms are coming out slowly.

So what’s for this month? Well, I have stuff about our New Brighton

Library and and famous Pier. Boring, you say! I want something better! Hey guys, this is pretty neat stuff. I must say the pier is breathtaking, looking out to the sea especially at night. So want something romantic? Definitely the Pier at night!

I can remember going to the old library, but between you and me there wasn’t much there. Now the New Library has so much! You’ll simply love or you can lof it!

    The Pier

    New Brighton Pier

    I’ve always thought the Pier is a great place though I’ve

    never been there at night. From what I’ve heard

    it’s beautiful at night as well. Mind you,

    don’t tell everyone but it’s fantastic fish area too!

    Opposite the pier is a great shopping mall along

    with the Bungy Rocket that everyone loves.

    In the summer it’s just as much fun walking

    along the beach and eating fish’n’chips on the pier!

    Crazy kiwis, eh!

    The Pier is open all hours but busier on those hot summer days.
