Bethany Christian Park ,Kaiteriteri


Waking to the sunshine and feeling the warmth of the sun on my skin,looking out at the beautiful pine trees covering the slopes as far as the eyes could see , was a big treat!

The minute I saw the world sunshiny and  bright when I woke up,I’d made up my mind, I was going to love Kaiteriteri. And true to that , I was not disappointed.

As I mentioned before, we stayed in Bethany Christian Park , which is a campsite in the resort town of Kaiteriteri.

We stayed in a heated cabin with comfortable bunk beds, a small table with four chairs.DSC_8358

There were several camp plots , with electrical points and  spaces for tents. Bathrooms were shared and so was the large well equipped spacious common kitchen. Everything was so clean and well maintained that we didn’t have any problem whatsoever .

We had a very pleasant stay here.We had prepared and packed  picnic food of tamarind rice, chicken fry and meat cutlets with us from Christchurch and we saved them all in the refrigerator there .The entire family enjoyed the food very much.

The other campers were very polite and friendlyDSC_8401DSC_8352DSC_8356DSC_8444IMG_8315


The stunning golden beach was just a five minute walk from the the park and we spend a lot of our time, lazing on the beach which was so relaxing and refreshing.

We didn’t have an agenda, we just decided to take it easy and enjoy each other’s company. After all the change in our lives we just needed to hang out together, and  do nothing but enjoy each other’s company.

We did the most mundane things like stopping on the roadside picnic spot to eat our fish and chips

Lessons on whistling sharply were  exchanged between the father and son. Its the son offering tips to the dad and not the other way round, if you were wondering!
