|Hot Water Beach|
Whitianga (pronounced fi-ti-an-ga) is a quaint beach town on the East side of the Coromandel Peninsula. We stopped at Hot Water Beach on the way. It is a beach that is situated over - you guessed it - hot springs. If you bring your shovel and a little patients to find the springs you can ding hole and sit in hot water while relaxing by the cold ocean. The beach along with the entire peninsula is truly resplendent.
Saturday we went to a walk to Cathedral Cove and babysat in the afternoon.
Sunday we drove home via the scenic route. It was a peaceful and, after seven weeks in Auckland, a much needed holiday.
