Author’s note

This book was inspired by my children and staying at the bach for a few days. I love the joy and learning that comes from being in the outdoors. I aim to inspire others to get into the outdoors and to care for our environment. Readers love exploring the beach and the emotions that are linked to these adventures. This book has such beauty in the simplicity of the words, and the stunning artwork is classic New Zealand.
