Mangawhai Beach


James, 12

Pohutukawa trees dancing in the cool calm breeze
Seagulls squawking at the kids climbing rocks
Bell birds chirping to the beat of swimmers strokes
Jet skis circling the docked up boats
Dogs flattening the intricate sand castles
Teenagers jumping into the cool refreshing water
And mothers foraging through their handbags for sunscreen.
