This weekend, we went on a road trip to the Coromandel Peninsula, which is east of Auckland about 2 hours. I was so amazed by how green all of the hills were on the way there, and how uninhabited the land is outside of Auckland. I couldn't help but to look out the window for the whole car ride!

One place we went while at the Coromandel was Cathedral Cove, which is pictured above. It took a couple miles to hike to it, or "tramp" to it, as Kiwis say. We got to the cove right at sunset, and it was beautiful!

One of the other highlights of our weekend at the Coromandel was the hot water beach, which is pictured both above and below. It it a very unique beach where there are hot springs under the sand, so it allows visitors to dig holes in the wet sand and create their very own hot tub on the beach!

Pictured here is the "hot tub" we made. The hot springs produce extremely hot water, so having some of the ocean water pour in created the perfect temperature.
