So it’s hello and goodbye to the Coromandel Peninsula. Parts of this place are like heaven on earth and I feel very blessed to have had the privilege of growing up and holidaying here as a youngster and later coming back to own a little piece of it. They say Home is where the heart is and this beautiful piece of land will always have a special place in my heart.

Today I leave these green shores for arid OZ. Although I have to say that before I came the weather in OZ had been spectacularly wet. More like NZ weather really.

So this post is really offering some images of things experienced in the last 10 days and wanting to share some of the beauty…..

And so it is goodbye to the land of the long white cloud until I can return once more.
