The picturesque scene A Beach .. not just any beach posted late last night follows reading "In the Best Interests of the Child" by Hetty Johnston. It appears that Hetty spent nine months of her life in Whakatane New Zealand from about 1987.
I found that interesting as the name of the town most certainly rings a bell as I spent a short period of time at Ohope beach some 34 years ago. Amazingly I found the image above on Wikipedia which is marked as being "in the creative commons" and "can be used for any purpose".
I say "amazingly" as I can zoom in on detail in the original and in doing so I was stuck with the beauty of this beach and indeed how little has changed in 34 years (unless it's a very old photograph) on the Bay of Plenty where I considered the poetic nature of moonlight while a more adventurous soul might have wished for a more energetic approach.
At that spot commenced a very deep interest in censorship ( 34 years ago ).
