    Auckland to the coromandel peninsul

    October 31, 2016 in New Zealand ⋅ 🌙 13 °C

    Today we headed to the Coromandel Peninsula on the advice of Gary as we had thought to give it a miss.
    We spent the morning sorting ourselves out and then set off for some lunch and a mini stock up, mainly for a lonely planet guide, before heading South through the city. We found a good lonely planet Road trip guide so fingers crossed it is useful! Meanwhile we had found a $5 campsite online in a car park and so headed there for the night. It was actually really nice and even had free electricity! We had some very healthy tinned spaghetti and sausages as it was getting quite dark and enjoyed watching the sun go down. Got a bit worried when a police car turned up as I thought maybe this was too good to be true for a campsite but they just had a friendly chat and wished us all well.
    Oh and there was also a very adorable ginger and cream coloured cat that decided to befriend everyone and so we got to have a little cuddle. It was even there ready for us in the morning ☺️
