COASTLINE MERGE – THE EDGE OF THE WORLD
We have now left the ancient belly of the rainforest and I am standing on the remote takayna coastline. It is wild, it is rugged and it is again, breathtaking. The cloistered confines of the forest cathedral have been replaced by the great wild, wide open. Enormous piles of driftwood scatter the foreshore, testament to the relentless ferocious power of the battering elements. This is where the roaring forties drive the Indian ocean into the takayna coast. The forest merge was nurturing, peaceful, transcendent, this will be a wildly exhilarating release into the elements of fierce sun, jagged rocks and wind ravaged outcrops. I am standing at the edge of the world.
