Mahia Beach

The gold dampened, fluffy, static sand sucking my feet into its gigantic mouth.
The hungry fisherman keen to catch some fresh Kahawai and the rose coloured crabs ready to pounce at someone's big toe.
Then the young green trees resting peacefully in the wild wind.
The small town wondering where they get their groceries from.
Then the beaming sun moving as fast as a massive turtle on hot concrete.
This is my paradise.
