We decided to go across the Coromandel Peninsula and drive down a different route. We took a gravel road from Coroglen to Tapu. The road was nice and quiet, though dusty, with farmlands mixed with bush. I felt the drive got a little hairy at times because the road curved around the mountain and visibility was rough around the curves. A little nerve-racking in a large RV! Frank had a good time driving it though.
We stopped in Thames to pickup more supplies; got my shoes repaired as well. The sole was coming off from all our walking! Then we pushed on up through Auckland and all the way up Highway 1 to Paihia (Bay of Islands). It was a really long driving day. We stayed at a holiday park in Paihia.
