New Chums Beach
Bay of Plenty/Coromandel
Marnie, 12The tree’s finger tips reach out to grab the water as I slowly walk towards the end of the beach. Step by step my feet sink into the soft sand. Oystercatchers hang by a trickling stream disappearing down into the trees. Turquoise water pushes itself towards us as we lie under the wings of the pohutukawa tree. Bugs pounce around in white sand.
