Well I’m still just loving this place. Spent most of last week hanging out with friends in Tauranga / Mount Maunganui. Beautiful beach. Day trip to Rotorua was great – as well as bubbling pools of mud there was a beautiful walk in the Redwood forest, lakes aplenty and general loveliness.
Now in Coromandel. The drive up here was absolutely awesome. Today drove up from Coromandel Town to Colville (blink and you’ll miss it) but did a fabulous walk from a farm up some big fuck off hills and got stupendous views of the oceans – Pacific on one side and some other one on the other (soz map not to hand…).
Yesterday eve watched the sun set over Long Beach just out of town. Beautiful. Unfortunately for now you’ll just have to take my word for it as card reader is elsewhere and Internet access is not so great.
