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.
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 friendly
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
