In the school holidays, My family went to Mt Maunganui. We lived right next to the beach and it was only a 1 minute walk. On our second day there, we climbed Mt Maunganui. It was more than 2 hours to get up and down the mountain. It is 232m tall, which is not tall at all. Then we went to the beach and the hot pools. The hot pools were very hot, and it was salt water!
