Rain and boats and trains!

Still pouring and blowing a gale! Packed lunch in the car looking at boats in Coromandel Harbour, so sad. Luckily gale reduced to windy drizzle and guess what we found some trains! Driving Creek Railway built by some mad potter who was obviously a very good engineer as well. Great trip along a 12 inch gauge track with great views out to Waheike Island. Added bonus was a tour of the bird sanctuary.
Now in the bar with Tasha drinking my beer as she has finished her strawberry ...

The lure of the water was too much for us, and opted for a swim, although we quickly learnt its deceit, its ...

Had a ice leisurely drive along the coastline to Whittianga. Many deserted beaches with just one or two people dotted on them. Found a campground just 1k from the beach and the town centre. This town has quite a few shops.

Where's the beach?

So the grown-up has heard lots of good things about the Coromandel area of New Zealand and in particular, the beaches and beautiful sands and was looking forward to enjoying some R&R on the beach...

We stayed in Coromandel town, a nice little place, but not close to a beach at all (the think the grown-up wished that she had read this part of the book before coming here!). The nearest beach was a good long walk away and the lady at the i-Site office said that the tide ...
