We walked down a staircase by the 55m drop, stopping half way to take a panorama view:

Yes, another portrait mode video, but it’s a portrait mode waterfall!
Then we had to walk back up the 55m of staircase…
After that, we drove up to Raglan, to wait and watch the sunset, while drinking hot chocolate.

The sky! Full of stars! Alien stars!! It was a most peculiar experience, seeing a sky full of completely unfamiliar star patterns. Oh yes, I identified the Southern Cross, but wasn’t the same seeing it for real as seeing a picture. For one thing, it’s tiny!
The Milky Way towards the galactic centre is splendid: broad and structured. I stayed looking up and around for quite a while.
