Crashing Waves!

Titahi Bay


Milly , 11

The sun slowly goes down and all you can hear are the waves crashing over each other.
Then the water goes over your toes and a shiver goes up your spine.
The sea feels gentle and inviting.
I take a step closer, I jump! Brrr, it's cold.
I take a dive, the refreshing water goes through my body like a skeleton. I go up to take a breath.
It’s like a light switch, the sun is up one minute and down the next.
