... re made the oak tree in steel and silcone...and applied 200,000 fake leaves. They also rebuilt the 44 hobbit holes, this time in beautifully crafted wood...clearly they realized the set would live on as a park after the film was long gone. Unfortunately for the crew, the leaves on the fake tree faded just before filming in the naturally they employed someone in a cherry picker to repaint all 200,000 a few days before filming could begin.

Helen and Tony awake at 7am. We got up, dressed and sorted our swimming gear and then set off, heading North towards an early morning appointment with the natural hot waters bubbling through the sands of Hot Water Beach.

We started out by heading down to Hahei beach and Evie really loved it. She got right into the sand and was ecstatic when Chris dug her a little hole to sit in. She really couldn't get enough.

We decided to head to Hotwater Beach... another tourist mecca, where the hot water bubbles up and people dig little hot tubs right along the water. You'd think ...

... All that has stuck is the town name of Thames. 30mins later we found ourselves in the idyllic waterfront town of Tairua which I had to stop and take a photo of. The town on the other side of the water is known as the place that ridiculously wealthy Aucklanders fly their private jets in to spend the weekend in their holiday home. Hot Water beach is our location for the next 2 nights on the Pacific (east) side of the peninsular. ...
