New Zealand Part 3 {Coromandel Town}

After we left Rotorua we drove to my brother in law, Billy's, home town. Coromandel Town is on the Coromandel Peninsula, and is about a 3 hour drive or a 2 hour ferry ride from Auckland.

Billy's parents and brother still live in Coromandel Town, in a house that has been in the family for generations. They own a farm and Billy's brother, Evan, is a fisherman. They are such nice, wonderful people and they were so hospitable!

We loved Coromandel Town. It has one main street with adorable shops and restaurants. The buildings reminded me of those from my hometown in Hailey, Idaho.

Other than walking around the quaint down town, Billy took the boys out fishing and Riley caught a few fish! We also went on a small railway tour of the countryside. Here are some pictures from Coromandel Town and our railway adventure.
