My Waikaia

Waikaia

Southland/Fiordland

Milly, 13

The water laps at the soft sand, moulding it and washing it away. Paddling into the ice cold water trying to get to the rock, the taste of the fresh cool water is calming and relaxing. The cool breeze against your body and your teeth chattering you walk to the edge and prepare to jump, you take the leap of faith and plunge into the ice cold water again laughing and smiling, wading back to dry land and wrapping a towel around yourself feeling refreshed and happy. Waking up to the sound of the birds chirping, and the breezy wind, the smell of freshly cut grass completes your day.
