The Child Who Left...

According to Maori legend, this rock sticking up from the ocean offshore of the black sand beach near Karekare (on the Tasman Sea) is the child who left. Ashore and not easily photographed due to the time of day were a much larger rock formation (the mother) and a smaller formation nearby (the child who stayed). I don't recall the rest of the story but liked this photo because it shows the sparkly nature of the black sand beaches of New Zealand. (note that I'm back from vacation and WAY behind on posts but gradually trying to catch up... my vacation blog has more photos if you care to have a look)
