Fair enough, except peninsula is a noun, used especially when naming some peninsular body after some prominent or not so prominent person. Peninsular is an adjective describing the land mass itself, i.e. surrounded almost completely by water.

And you're right, if (or when) that peninsular mass becomes completely surrounded by water, it would become an island. Christchurch would have to build its own harbour bridge. Let's not go there. And let's hope it doesn't happen anyway. Cantabrians have suffered enough.

You Dorklanders carry on thinking like this.........
We don't need you flash Harries down here on the Peninsula, using your easy-made money to build flash houses and bump up property prices. We have no cellphone coverage, no articulated water, and no sewerage, and we like it just fine.
We have no boy racers, no whingers, and no shops; but lots of fish and great kayaking.

Yet the rest of Christchurch is moaning about having to live in those conditions in town and so are the Olympic committee

I am a born and bred South Islander from Graham Valley Pokororo in The South island.
The funny thing is I like Auckland the climate is normally warm, people friendly in Western Auckland, fishing good, house prices arent too bad around Oratia and Glen Eden, duck shooting good.
Having a big population base is good for business you see people like door doctors, piano movers, seal a fridge, mobile diesel engine leak down checkers, just about 0800anything.

I quite like the Graham valley area has some good caving, tramping but yes it is much colder than in Nelson

I spent a few months in Auck some years ago and I can honestly say CHCH has better summers, glories blue clear skies for weeks on end, and Auckland still get a fair amount of overcast and rain. Sure CHCH winters are harder but NOTHING compared to much of Europe and the East coast of the US etc. Will agree business is easier in Auck with the larger pop.

lol Door doctors!, come in doc examine my wife, ill leave you two alone!
