Where we belong

Lake Taupo

Hawke's Bay

Tess, 10

Droplets of sweat rolling down our faces, as the crisp, golden sun reflects onto the water, which makes the ripples sparkle as they dance upon the seemingly endless lake. And as our little boat floats across the water, the cliffs start to build up, higher and higher. One at a time, we each feel a little bite, and as we pull the freshly caught fish up, we realise, this is where we belong.
