The story takes us on a journey – a 1970’s safari coach trip to the inland. The scenery changes from the red heart and the towering beauty of inland rock formations then back to the coast. Scenes may changes but unresolved issues of un-forgiveness and sorrow travel with folk everywhere.
‘It’s the beauty the absolute beauty of this changing rock face that breaks my heart. How could such beauty still be in this world when Stevie is not here any more?'(Raelene).
The tide was now full and swirling waves splashed against their ankles but the two men continued to walk up and down the golden sand. As they talked understanding between them was forged.
Raelene breathed in the wind off the ocean and began her walk along the sand. The pain in her heart did not disappear but peace began to flow although the sorrow was still real.
Martin watched as the last turtle returned to the ocean.

I remember Raelene and affirm my belief that restoration, forgiveness and peace will come to her whole family. a-men.
The surf now was a gentle sigh in the distance and all the baby turtles were safely in the ocean.
