Jumping off a Pier

Islington Bay


Olivia, 8

My dad has an awesome boat so we took advantage of the beautiful Auckland summer weather and went over to Islington Bay. We love to find little pockets of the harbour where there are piers we can jump long as it's safe.
This particular pier was super high and you could see all the way back toward the city.
We climbed up the steps, and edged out to where it was safe to jump. Mum was watching from the boat.I jumped. I felt excitedly nervous but was not scared.
