Rob Davies Good point Gashman. After the earthquakes broke the pipes the sea around Christchurch got badly polluted. Following repairs,, Sumner had just been given the all-clear a week before I took this shot in Sept 2011. Was New Brighton still closed? How are things now? Does anyone have an update?
