With the kids at school on Monday, Jessica and I went walkabout to a spot intriguingly called Taylors Mistake. Apparently, a ship captain with a bottle of rum too many ran aground around Godley’s Head looking for Summer Bay. There are worse mistakes he could have made.
The bay on the outskirts of Christchurch has daring cliff walks and has a bit of an Old Head of Kinsale feel about it. It’s a magnificent, isolated coastal walk, steep in parts. What we used refer to as clearing the head they now call mindfulness, but I’d highly recommend it.
The Crusaders had Monday off after returning from Wellington with an important victory over the Hurricanes. Important not just for the ladder but for the psychological pep of the players coming off a sloppy loss in Sydney.
