Waimarama is Special to Me!

Waimarama Beach

Hawke's Bay

Alexi, 12

Our summer was filled with wonderful days, the sun shone on our backs. I loved waking up at 7am, rushing out of bed and sprinting out onto the beach. Boy the water was chilly - but it woke me up alright! I couldn't wait to bike down to the shop later that morning to go the gourmet "Waimarama Beach Store" to get my $1 lolly mix. I then boogy boarded on some crystal clear waves later that afternoon. The burning sand stings your feet but at the same time it feels good. Waimarama has great surroundings and community, it makes me feel extremely relaxed and happy, but sad when I have to leave.
