Where the seas meet
I intended to post this along with yesterday’s post but was too sleepy to remember that detail when I remembered that I had forgotten to do my daily perspective post last night.
I believe that the ripples and color change in this photo are the type of characteristics that the sticks in the chart in yesterday’s post, A different way to see the sea, represent.
Photo taken at Cape Reinga, the north-most part of New Zealand’s North Island.
At the Cape, the Tasman Sea meets the Pacific Ocean in a spectacular swirl of currents. At the northernmost tip of the Cape is a gnarled pohutukawa tree, believed to be over 800 years old. According to Maori oral history, the spirits of deceased Maori leap from this tree into the ocean to return to their ancestral homeland of Hawaiki.www.newzealand.com
