Golden Wedding

My parents have been married for 50 years. The far-flung family gathered in Christchurch to celebrate. We had dinner at Hay's, opposite the Casino. Pictured above, a corsage for my Mum, duck and asparagus crepes, salmon with cherry tomatoes, basil and beans, lemon curd pavlova. Clean, uncomplicated tastes. Beautiful.

We saw a rainbow trout swimming in the Avon river in the middle of the city. Christchurch was pretty as usual, calm and hot, unlike the wintery, gale-ridden Wellington we returned to. I'm going to live in Christchurch one day. Look, here's another Paul Dibble sculpture, Leaf, outside the City Art Gallery.

Sorry to have missed you while you were here. Looks like your dinner was great and I liked the flowers!! I hope you do come and live here one day, as I can show you around. Sumner beach on a hot day is superb....fish and chips at the beach, washed down with a frisky Sauvignon Blanc...(sigh)

Happy 50 years to your parents! What an inspiration!!! The food at their party looks yummy.
Love the leaf sculpture too. Looks like you're having a ball.
