NEW ZEALAND ~Cape Reinga~

What a great end of the week... The colors and view are amazing...
And the story behind this place is so mysterious: According to the Māori mythology the spirits of the dead travel to Cape Reinga on their journey to the afterlife in their spiritual homeland (Reinga means the leaping-off place).
....Again another place on my wishlist for a visit!:-)

Situated at the northern tip of New Zealand, Cape Reinga has a spiritual significance as the place where the spirits of the dead depart to their ancestral home of Hawaiiki.Here the Tasman Sea meets the Pacific Ocean.
