Today we went to Birdlings Flat. We moved out to the beach when we first came to Christchurch. It was so nice to see our old little house, but best of all was the picnic and walk on the beach. I love this beach and in the time we lived there I spent many many hours on it. The beach is famous for its agates and gem stones. The echo of your steps in the stones feels like you are walking in the footprints of the past. Old souls and history wrap around you and heal. Clear heads and hearts.
