Wyn and I were talking this morning about that Dunedin sunrise and how maybe it was the best we have seen. Wyn remembers ringing me to alert me to it. And then we got to talking about what might have been the best sunset we have seen. One sunset that sprang to mind we saw back in March 2009 over the New Plymouth Harbour. We were sitting in the Belt Road Camping Ground looking out over the harbour – relaxing after the wonderful WOMAD music festival.
It was a gorgeous evening. No clouds. Just graduations of colour as the sun set. The thing we remember is that it went on and on. It seemed like hours but was just minutes. Quite a few minutes.
