4/5Jan07 Bowentown, Waihi & Whiritoa

After the East Cape Excursion and a qucik trip home to catch up with a few essentials we headed back to the Coromandel Coast. We stayed the night, 4th, in the carpark of the Waihi Beach RSA as did many other motorhomes. Whilst down at the beach I couldn't resist snapping a pic of our motorhome reflected in the hubcap of the spare wheen of a vintage Plymouth.The morning of the 5th saw us head down to the southern end of Waihi Beach to Bowentown. The park on the harbour side proved to be a great place for breakfast.After breakfast we headed back to Waihi and caught up with one of the locals of the Waihi Mosaic Gardens.Below is a sample of what can be found in the Mosaic Gardens. They are well worth a visit even just to see the pig (above)rounding up the chickens, feeding the eels in the creek and oh yes the huge range of mosaics.
From Waihi heading North to stay the night at Whangamata we detoured to see a really nice beach, Whiritoa. After a relaxing lunch and a few ZZZ's it was onwards to Whangamata where we planned to park for the night at the Whangamata RSA.
