Labyrinth on Ninety Mile Beach, Northland

Ninety Mile Beach

Sun and blue skies ahead, rain clouds behind us and a pristine stretch of beach. The thought came to both of us simultaneously - it needed a labyrinth.

The easiest labyrinths to make in the sand are classical labyrinths. They are easy to draw freehand from a simple seed pattern.

These images show us creating a labyrinth on Ninety Mile Beach in November 2012. Heather began with the seed pattern, using a trekking pole we had in the vehicle. Tony then continued to draw the outer paths as Heather took over the camera.
