I'm currently visiting my family in Waverley, South Taranaki. This is where I grew up. There was a time in my life when I took this place for granted. Now I love coming back.
Waverley Beach reminds me of summer holidays that felt like they lasted forever. I remember exploring the cave beach, playing laser tag in the camping ground, water balloon fights, the tuck shop and all the people.
Things are a little different these days, but I like visiting and thinking of all the memories. We took my little brother there yesterday, he had lots of fun!
