My special place

Mount Maunganui

Bay of Plenty/Coromandel

Jamie, 10

My legs were trembling, I was feeling weak. “Only a few more steps” I kept saying to myself as sweat made my mouth dryer and dryer.

The crippled trees bending over me, making a tunnel as the gravel path leads the way out. Mount Maunganui, my second home.
