Kuaotunu beach

Kuaotunu

Bay of Plenty/Coromandel

Millie, 9

The blazing sun beats down onto the silky sand. I'm getting excited that summer is coming this way. I wake up hearing the crash of the waves pounding down onto jagged rocks. The flax sway in the wind. The water feels like ice creeping up my legs. The sun sets lowering down below the horizon. Ripples form in the water. Secret coves are perfect for summers days. The tuis sing while the sun rises. The trees rustle in the summer breeze. The still river is home to many fish. The cloudless blue sky overhead. Distant islands are across the sea, barely visible against the mighty ocean.
