Lang's Beach is near Waipu and Uretiti

We want one of these!

We spent 10 days around Lang's Beach, looking out to the Hen and Chicken islands across Bream Bay (another one of Cap'n Cook's names that has stuck) and...

trying out the owner's wood fired pizza oven
testing the local chocolates at Bennett Chocolates
swinging on tree swings over Waipu Cove
playing pool and raz getting very good
Bear being taught how to do a handstand and the beginning of a cart wheel by Arle
getting into Twilight and watching the first 3 films with warm buttery popcorn
enjoying the owner's gorgeous veggie garden with fantastic tomatoes that you could pick a handful of every day, fresh lettuce and handfuls of basil, mint and chives. The tree tomatoes aren't quite ripe yet.,
enjoying our Sunday house roast of lamb with the trimmings
the kids climbing and monkeying around on the pohutukawa trees that hang over the edge of the beach
me being able to say pohutukawa trees at last

Sandy Bay

Zippy's Coffees and Ice Creams from the Flavourama machine at Lang's Beach. Boysenberry yoghurt fresh made in the van was the best.

We want one of those too! We know a Welsh brickie here in Auck who specialises in them. You'll have to come back to show us how it's done. Hope the road out of the Coromandel goes ok. x Vic & Jase
