Matapouri Magic



Aonui, 10

I can hear birds singing in a orchestra at the top of the tree, then the waves overpower that sound, crashing as the surfers ride the lengthy wave. I can taste the salt water as it makes my face like a prune eating something sour. I think of all the great views in my mind as I relax in the sand. I can feel it merging into my skin as I lie peacefully on the Matapouri shore.
