My favorite place

Lake Brunner

West Coast

Anna, 13

Sitting here in the sand, watching the bright sun reflected on the calm lake. Feeling the sand between my toes, on my finger tips, lightly touching my legs with a little tickle, water drops on my arms and legs like little rain drops. The heat of the sun trying to burn my back. Breathing in that fresh, clear air through my nose then right back out my mouth. Hearing the kids screaming of fun, the water splashing from the boats passing by. Just sitting here relaxing, feeling calm is always great. Being here in Lake Brunner is my favorite place in New Zealand.
