Holiday in the Coromandel

Just a few shots of the Coromandel area of New Zealand for those who live outside of New Zealand and are interested. The weather is warmer than Wellington, the vegetation can be quite tropical looking and there are lots of holiday homes for those from Auckland who can afford it. We just borrowed a house in Whangamata for 12 days and used that as a base to see the rest of the peninsula.
 This tree was laden with epiphytes (plants growing from the branches)
 Punga (tree fern)

 Froth on the river, possibly caused by pollen as we all got hayfever that day.

 View from the top of Driving Creek Railway, Coromandel Town.
