There is the open ocean with its never ending upp'y of cuoliug bretze?, whioh is the afset in the warm summer -.ea.hor, and to enjoy this to the full the residents have an ideal waterside rendezvous in Caroline Bay. The bay was practically dug out of the clay bunks which Brand at ohe back. The beacti was originally all shingle, but tbe erection of tbe breakwater and tbe harbour protection has had the effect of creating a beautiful sandy beach safe for bathing and quite firm. The bay is lined with bathing houses, tea kiosk-.-, band rotunda, tennis courts, awiDgs, air flights, etc All these latter attractions bave been given by the tradespeople of Timaru.
