Something woke me early
I never did find out what, but through the gap in the curtains there was an interesting colour in the Eastern sky. The spectacular cloud colours lasted a very short while, and then were gone.
Later in the day, I went Northward, first to Pukerua Bay. It was late in the afternoon and the low sun was back-lighting the waves quite nicely.
It had been a while since I ventured onto the Paekakariki Hill Road and from the lookout at the top, looked at the sweep of the waves in the bay and the shadow of Kapiti Island off the shore.
To the South, the islands of the Marlborough Sounds were getting the mistiness of evening and the light was fading.
The sun approached the horizon, dipped, and was gone.
So am I.
