A day at Cheltenham

Cheltenham Beach


Daniel, 10

I could feel the tense feeling when the waves came down, smashing the sand, then the calm feeling when it retreated. When I ran over the hot summer sand down to the beach, I felt the cool water healing my burning feet. The burning sun heating the beach like an oven. The soft sand weaving its way through my toes. So, as the small waves of Cheltenham come down and back away, I know that New Zealand is such a beautiful little place of beaches, beautiful beaches.
