The Cable Car is lovely

We went out today and caught the cable car from the top to the bottom and then back again. I used to catch it a lot up to Victoria, but I don't think I've been on it since. It is such a cool thing, goes every 10 minutes and is cheap as chips. When we were in Christchurch we fancied taking the boys on the tram and it was $12.50 per adult. The cable car set us all back $7.20. It was great to see that it was pretty full both ways too.

I love that you can leave the shops at one end and end up in the peace of the gardens at the top. Great way to get to a picnic in summer....hey, when is summer coming back?

Summer is scheduled to return after Christmas. i keep expecting someone to fix the weather, and mosquitos.

I think the cable car may have to be a bit of a weekly event now. So nice and easy parking up the top.

Say... you didn't see a stocky guy covered in mud (digging for gas mains all weeken) walking a yellow labrador?

Martha said...

Only if you're a 5ft 11 tall blond girl. I saw her walking a lab.

I do keep expecting to run into other bloggers, but only really know what Mike looks like. - Actually thanks to the Dom I guess I know what Mr Reasonable looks like too. Of course you know what I look like so the ball is in your court...

which isn't that helpful, I suppose.

Martha said...

not really as you seem to look different in each picture.

However, having looked at your profile I see you list Bilge Fest as a favourite. Widerbeest a gogo was my all time favourite going out song for a long time. And I loved Corrections. And I used to volunteer at Active. Cor.
