Daniel, 12

Waves crashing at your feet. The cold fresh air like a breath from the ocean, the hills towering over you as you stand at the bottom, the trees swinging like flags. Running down the beaches cold ice cream dripping from my hands, sliding over the sand into the refreshing water of the ocean. Akaroa is a place we often go as a family, we love it there because it is a beautiful place and it is full of adventure. We love taking long walks across the beaches and hunting for shells. I love jumping off the rocks and feeling the sun run down my back as I jump into the cool blue water.
