Bay of Plenty/Coromandel
Grace, 9As we walk up to the beach a new adventure starts.
The cold icy breeze hits me like a snowball.
The blaze on my cheek is suddenly stopped as the frostbitten sea hits me.
I’m alarmed as dad elevates my body onto a surf board.
When the waves boom, children giggle.
As it gets late, the kayaks zoom into shore.
Mum rushes to Olives to get freshly baked bread for dinner.
I love Whangamata.
