My last evening in this beach town. Just walked around the little city center, first along the harbour side, then back on the beach side. A magical evening after a very busy day (for the town). There was a race today at the beach which I watched first from the mount then from the beach. First running, then kayaking, then paddling.Lots of participants. Also two more cruise ships. I have seen four of them during this week, stop for the day then leaving until only a dot on the ocean. In the afternoon a few paragliders used the clear air to fly from the mount to the beach. I come to the conclusion that the mount is sacred, it seems to look after the town. I have been up twice today and brought my blessings up again this evening. Feeling fulfilled and happy now. Off to Taupo tomorrow morning. Will miss this place I feel although I will be happy to get out of the constant music and noise from the hot pools.
