Frankie, 10

The scorching hot black sand slipping through my toes, the afternoon sunshine beaming on my face and frying my body. The crystal clear water lapping at my feet to cool them... woosh you’re zooming in to shore on your foamy boogie board clenching on as if it’s a deadly rollercoaster. Shh..shh.shh. you go over a series of bumps and then the ocean flattens out. Wiping the salty water of your face you can see the view of gannets soaring above you, sandy dunes dancing in the wind like seaweed swaying in the deep sea. the boogie board comes to a stop on the sand, Muriwai my one and special place.
