I wonder what it would be like going to the beach for the first time? Feeling the sand in your toes, playing in the waves, collecting shells and looking for starfish. There would be very few NZ kids who have not had this experience. However, for the 31 girls who went on a holiday camp these holidays, it was their first time. They had never seen the ocean or been to the beach. Imagine the excitement. The days passed quickly and soon their week was up. It was back on the bus for the five hour drive home. Tired girls, but happy memories.
