A long day out today to explore the Coromandel. We dug a hole to sit in at Hot Water Beach, ran to cool off in the ocean and then back to warm up in the hot water. Brilliant! On to Cathedral Cove – the path is much changed since the last time we were there but the Cove is just as stunning. Picnic on the beach then across the 309 to the Kauri Grove – a reluctant and sleepy pair were made to get out of the car to walk to the Kauri but I think they appreciated it in the end!! They had plenty of time to sleep on the test of the journey back home!
