Christchurch // Cave Rock
sometimes, the best adventures are unplanned.
the four of us piled into the car after a long day of exploring Christchurch on foot. we wanted to go somewhere. anywhere. as long as we didn't have to walk anymore.
we used the GPS to search for nearby points of interest, expanding the search from 5 to 10 to 15 kilometers. "Cave Rock... that sounds interesting." we checked the map - it was on the coast. who's going to say no to the beach? we decided to go.
I don't really have much to say about Cave Rock other than it's aptly named: a giant rock, on the beach, with a cave in it. it's not really a big tourist spot. the beach was covered in locals enjoying a late sunday summer afternoon. our feet had recovered enough to climb under, over, around, and through - it might have had something to do with salty air and crashing waves - but mostly it's a great place to just relax.
