Tuesday 24 April 2012: The Crown Plaza Christchurch.
The only noise on this corner was the sound of the Monster chewing away at the Hotel once known as The Park Royal Hotel and then The Crown Plaza.
Empty since the earthquake on the 22 Feb 2011 this once was a hotel of 9 story's with 298 guest rooms over looking the beautiful Avon River and Victoria Square.
This was my first walk about the city in 12 months and it has left me foot sore and sad .... I know we have to swallow it up and get on with it but geez I am human and I do have emotions and I do like to feel them.
On a positive note the trees along the Avon River are looking stunning with all the colours of Autumn and Hagley Park is still a quite haven of beautiful trees flowers and shrubs.
