Conveniently Belinda's family have a bach out at Waihi beach which they were nice enough to let us stay at for a few nights, so using it as our base we explored a bit of the coromandel. Our first morning we got up for the sunset which was beautiful and then over the next couple of days we did some day trips to Cathedral Cove (above) and Hot water Beach amongst other things.

We also took Russ and Angel on a camping trip to one of our favourite tramping spots, out at te atutu south, which really is in the booneys, while most of the possums had been poisoned off, we still had some fun doing some target practice, of course Dean and Russ wanted to shoot at our gas canisters but they were dissappointed in the lack of explosion. While they were obsessing over finding things to shoot, Angel and I had to set up the camp, light the fire and get the food ready. It was a cool night, literally, I was fine in my fairydown but others were suffering, thats all part of the fun of camping.
