Coromandel Peninsula – Pacific Coast

November 6, 2011 1 comment

The route to Coromandel, up the Bay of Thames, is a winding scenic affair, combined with heavy rain and gale force winds, the road by the edge of the water was quite an intense drive. We eventually drove into Coromandel, and after an inquiry at the service station we plumped for the campsite whose owners were described to us as “rough as guts, but they’ll look after ya”; Bev and Debs were actually very nice. We found our pitch in a rainy squall, to be rewarded by a view from our lounge area straight out over the beach to the crashing sea.

Well – now we are starting to believe we are a long way away!!!!! Given our budgets, we are staying in a small family hostel in the very “local” end of town. It was a bit of a shock to the system pushing the buggy up the unmade roads, dogs wandering around, and the occasional youth roaring past on a 50cc Honda.

Lappin it up in Lappa

For a full day, we headed for the hills to the Roman town of Lappa. A tourist honey pot with some down to earth genuine sides to it too. The “tourist train” was a bit too much for us, but the suave dutch guide that turned up unexpectedly by the mosaics seemed to keep the ladies interested.
