My Matauri Bay Experience

Matauri Bay

Northland

Jamie, 10

Smoke wafted out of the fire pit in golden sand, under the starlit sky. Eyes were watering and nostrils inhaling the smoky night air. Waves were crashing a nice soothing beat in the summer’s sweet breeze. The moon was casting its light illuminating the seaside haven. People were chattering like little excited little birds and the colossal mountain was looming over the campsite like a stray UFO looking for its fellow martians. Kids were wielding their sticks with golden puffs on the end, ready to eat.

Matauri Bay, my special place.
