Umupuia (Duder's) Beach, NZ

A slice of seaside land inherited by my late grandfather, farmed and fished by my ancestors for over a century. With a baby in my belly, I went fishing with my great uncle last year as a kind of goodbye. The property sold soon after as a result of years of family feuding. It now forms part of a regional park so I will still be able to share it with my son. _ _ _ Hayley Preston, Australia. Image: Sutherland Kovach
