No place like it

Twizel

Canterbury

Cameron , 12

The golden grass sways in the gentle breeze. The mountains are sprinkled in pure white snow that brightens up the dark rock. The glass flat water on the lakes glisten in the morning sun. Rabbits scurry in and out of burrows scavenging the dry grassy plains. Boats cruise all day everyday grasping every chance they get to float on the warm waters of Benmore. Fish fly out of the deep canals as countless fishermen hope to pull in a monster. The ski field is filled with people taking in the gorgeous views and the thrill seeking slopes slopes. What an amazing place it would be to call home.
