It was raining when we woke up this morning so we had a quick shower, breakfast, tidy up and then on our way by 8:30. Followed State Highway(SH) 25 til we got to Thames and did some serious supermarket shopping. Back on the road again - What a fantastic journey. I knew it was a coast road but didn't realise how close to the coast it really was - Sandra's face was a picture - all the drops were on her side!!. We arrived at Coromandel and parked up before exploring the town and having lunch. Shelly Beach Holiday Park is right next to the sea - as the name suggests. We've booked in here for two nights so will have a break from driving.
