"3 months in Brighton" New Brighton by ATLC
New Brighton Travel Guide: 39 reviews and 96 photos
When we lived in Christchurch, we temporarily moved to New Brighton to live in a caravan near the beach and Avon estuary for 3 months. Because our house was sold and two new houses were being built by my father.
I made friends with two boys my age and we got into heaps of fun and trouble. Going to the beach with picnics (cheese and onion sandwiches), going surfing...
Running wild in the woods around the estuary, pinching matches and burning anything of interest, from a plastic box, twigs, leftovers from barbecues and a dead seal. Yes, we did get caught and punished... :-) I even remember how. My parents had friends over who had children. The eldest boy came along with us to play. We made a fire. He told the parents. The rest is history... (I hope I punched him hard, but I can't remember I did!).
I still have the tiniest scar on the back of my left hand, as a result of that I burned myself.
