Mahia Beach


Hawke's Bay

Emma, 12

The chilled waves crash up onto my legs,
My feet sinking into the sand below,
The blazing hot sun scorches my fragile skin,

As the giant dried grass fairies dance to the tune of the wind,
You can hear the children happily laughing as they dive elegantly into the waves,

This summer day has flown by,
I think its time to go!
