15 January 2014: Taylors Mistake

Our final stop in New Zealand would not be complete without a visit to the beach!  On this trip, we visited 'Taylor's Mistake', a cove of a beach that boasts some of the cleanest water in the Christchurch area.  The spot also boasts some fantastic surf conditions, and it didn't disappoint!

We arrived late in the afternoon, following our visit to the Antarctic Centre, and got into the water soon thereafter!  Most of group got into the surprisingly-mild water to do some body surfing and water-ducking.  We threw the rugby ball around for some true New Zealand experience and took plenty of pictures.  We relaxed for a while on the beach, talking about our experiences during our course, and discussed some of the changes that would improve the program.  Our students have just been fantastic on this trip and we've been really fortunate to experience this trip with them, and now, in retrospect, get their feedback on the experience.  Dr. Moran and I have some changes to make to focus more on some of the exciting or unique experiences of the trip, but according to the students, it seems like the students have had a great time!  Awesome!
