Spencer Park to Waimakariri River Mouth

Our summer-like temperatures have continued well into May, reaching 22 degrees with a nor’west wind blowing for our beach walk.    We headed north along the beach from Spencer Park until we reached the Waimakariri River Mouth, then returned on the Waimakariri Walkway, an 11km trip (return).
