Lush Life

Waitati

Otago

Natalie, 13

That luxurious sweet scent of the sea filled my nostrils. I can picture the lush green trees whistling in the slight breeze. As I run down to the sparking clear blue water, I can feel the soft sand tickling my delicate feet. I embrace the water, my skin absorbing the lush cold droplets. I scream with delight as I dive under the water. I feel a shiver down my spine as the water submerges my head. As I look back to the beach, I see my Mum and Dad sunbathing under the fiery ball in the sky, I can feel it surrounding me with warmth and fire. The water is such a relaxing place to be on a hot day.
