Simpsons Beach

Simpsons Beach

Bay of Plenty/Coromandel

Jamie, 9

As we arrive at Simpsons Beach my feet touch the boiling hot sand.
The icy cold water soothes my burnt and melting feet.
I hear the sand hoppers digging deep into the sand around me.
I hear the crunching of the sizzling sand in my hands.
I see the smooth clouds and the boiling hot sun above me.
I see the crisp sapphire sky flowing above me.
I smell the salt in the sparkling sea.
I smell the damp and salty sand.
