Lyttelton Port & Petanque

A beautiful Tuesday evening in the busy port of Lyttelton, still lively despite the ongoing shakes.

The long Summer evening sets in over the road tunnel entrance.

Logs for China.

Despite the quakes the port seems as busy as ever.

The Diamond Harbour ferry.

Still operating after more than a century. the vintage steam tug Lyttelton.

On Norwich Quay the onetime Harbour Board headquarters Shadbolt House sits empty.
Its future depends on the extent of earthquake damage.

A rare survivor of Lyttelton's once rich architectural heritage, Fuze Restaurant and Cafe remains closed.

Dalmatian Bambina (love that red dot).

Gulls heading for the recently opened Porthole Bar.

The event of the evening - Gap Filler Petanque Championships at the Lyttelton Petanque Club.

A freshly resurfaced pitch for the occasion.

The list of contenders for the coveted Gap Filler Petanque Trophy.

DJ for the evening Emily Sultan.

Emily and fellow DJ Simon Riley of Volcano Radio.

Potential champs vie for the trophy.

A dynamic petanque moment.
