The Tree at Sentinel Rd

Herne Bay

Auckland

Isabelle, 10

Gripping the rough bark of the tree, I clamber up, hauling myself up into the topmost branches. The bees are humming and buzzing all around me, as a sudden breath of wind stirs the leaves making them rustle and whisper in my ear.
While a shaft of sunlight shines down, casting dappled light. Suddenly a bird decides to begin warbling out a chirping, twittering, melody, fluttering “away to the tune”! I bask in the warm sun while I get a glimpse of the shimmering crystal sea, partially hidden by lush green growth… Does it really get any better than this!
