Ruby was right. I could see the outlines of the land and the water. It helped that this land was just like the real New Zealand. I had studied both islands before I left the U.S. To be fair and more accurate, I had studied this country on and off since I first heard about New Zealand in second grade. Right then and there I decided that it was the most beautiful place in the world and that I’d go there someday.
To be more honest, I’ve often dreamed of moving to New Zealand and finding the garden I had seen on the television show.
