Perfect end to the day

Fabulous walk in the evening sun last night. Great to see others out walking with their children, people roller blading - seems to cater for all. Loved the junior bike park.

This is a great place for a walk. One side is the city with art deco buildings and on the other with waves coming crashing in all the way from Peru
