Ruapuke beach continued . . .

Well, they say you shouldn't live life vicariously.  However, that doesn't account for someone like me who doesn't mind too much if it's me observing, or me observing someone else observing.

So this moment is another key point of my daughter Olivia's ongoing discovery of New Zealand's landscape physiognomy.

Imagine you're driving down the west coast of the North Island - just exploring places you've never been.  Near Raglan, you go south down the coast road.  It's getting late, you come down the hill to see a beach - the sign says "Ruapuke Beach". 

The sunset is unlike any sunset you've seen before, and, by the way, you've seen some sunsets.  You walk towards the darkening surf to look homewards to your missing family and feel a sense of delight and sadness simultaneously.  That's the moment here.  I can feel it.

Is that living life vicariously - to paint that picture?  Who knows?  I did it anyway.
