The last days of Summer

Purau Bay


Amber, 10

My family and I went to Purau bay to soak up the summer sun. It was a beautiful warm day so the ocean was lovely. The water was an amazing shade of crystal clear blue and when you walked across soft sand, your feet sunk and emerged leaving a trail of perfect footprints. It was a beautiful place to stop, have a swim and take in the amazing view.
