Okarito's Endangered Kiwi Birds

I was walking back from a stroll along the shoreline of the tumultuous Tasman Sea. Huge white frothy waves rolled in fast and tossed the beach rocks smooth. The sea was reclaiming its territory and I needed to move. Giggling as I scurried to miss a wave whose speed I had miscalculated, I felt energized and happy. The mountainous western coast of the South Island of New Zealand (also known as Westland) is wild and unpredictable. Exhilarating! Gazing up at the craggy cliffs, I enjoyed the strong breeze and penetrating sunrays and wondered what the day would bring. I could not have predicted the rare adventure to come later that evening.
