Bay of Plenty/Coromandel

Ben, 12

We arrive at the beach, we rush into the crystal clear water I swim to the old and beat up wharf, then we have a Manu competition I jump into the water and boom, then my whole life flashes in front of me the crystal water turns into a muddy pulp, I pop up out of the ice cooled water the heat strikes me in the face just before my brother jumps, it's a little splash so I win. I brag about it as we splash noisily back to the beach.
