The Gully


Hawke's Bay

Isabella, 11

The gully which backs onto our house is a marvelous place. You can climb trees, walk on tracks, play games and make huts. It's a great place to be. The calling of birds, the dogs barking, children's excited screams as they swoop down the slide on the playground nearby. You can see bush, grass and trees… lots of trees. You can spot the birds soaring through the greenery as they play tag. I play hide and seek tag with my friends down the gully and sometimes we take the dogs too. When it’s wet and raining we walk through the water with gumboots. We have to be careful not to trip up. It's magical.
