Tolaga Bay

Last weekend the weather was very nice so we went to a beach called 'Tolaga Bay'.  It takes about an hour to get there from our home.  Tolaga Bay is famous for its wharf.  The wharf is over 600 metres long, it's the longest in New Zealand!  The beach at Tologa Bay is nice too.

We like to go fishing off the wharf.  We make fishing lines from sticks.  This is my daughter Lyra.  She is nearly 8 years old.  Last time we went there she caught a small fish but not this time.  Even if you don't catch any fish it's still fun. 

Some other people were fishing on the wharf too.  A woman caught a crayfish on a fishing line!  She was very surprised!
