Castlepoint Beach

Masterton

Wellington/Wairarapa

Hamish, 8

The sand was like sandpaper, that yellow. The water was like the sky changing colour. The shells and the rocks go so beautifully together. There was nobody there, just me and my sisters walking the dog. We saw five people doing a massive barbeque. In some places the water is very dirty because of the sand and rubbish. The waves smashing make a splashing sound. When you step on the wet, wet sand, it makes a deep, deep hole.
