Hahei Beach


Bay of Plenty/Coromandel

Benji, 8

As I walk very slowly through the shining sand l see glittering, soaking water washing up all the shells. I think to myself who was the first person to ever walk on this beach?. “Hey look over there” “there's a rock as big as a blue whale”. “Ahh” I hear my brother scream “There's a stingray swimming right next to me!” As my big brother was screaming I tripped over a gigantic stick “OUCH”. Then when I was about to jump into the sea I very, very quickly ran back and asked where do the Sharks swim?
