Collaroy housed a building painted in modern colours, with our lodgings hidden down the hill in the trees. From where the minibus pulled up, just in the shade, I couldn’t spot the water, but I had been promised a good view. Excited, the others rose to their feet, before I did, from my seat at the back. Even though it might have felt like it, this wasn’t a school camp, and there were no rules to abide by, no teachers keeping us in check. I ambled down the empty aisle and turned, finally catching a glimpse of the glimmering ocean as I stepped off the bus.

“Pretty good view, hey,” I remarked with a grin.

“Yeah,” Sasha agreed. “It’s magical.”

In what seemed like a split-second, she’d turned to help unpack our bags from the bus. I lingered just for a moment, in admiration and awe, then got to work along with my schoolmates – my former schoolmates, that was. A storm was coming, but for the meantime, we were being welcomed into paradise, to spend the next three days without a care in the world.
