I wanted to do a second little posting about just 2 days of my West Coast trip - just about a little place called Okarito. It's about 20 km off the main West Coast road.
|The old wharf.|
I walked a lot, I had a quick cold swim and I even rented a kayak on the spur of the moment and paddled around a gorgeous protected estuary and up a small river for several hours.
I read, skipped stones, chatted with a little Swiss boy about the lion on his T-shirt. I drank coffee and got out my new watercolor paint set. And I mulled some things over. At some point I found myself thinking, wouldn't it be nice if there could be some sort of sign to let you know that everything in life is going to work out alright? Not to say there won't be challenges and hardship, but you know, just something to offer that vague reassurance? Then I looked around myself and chuckled -- what more of a sign could I want?
