STAGE 4E1 AND 4E2 NOW SELLING
Greg and I are standing in front of one of the Coromandel’s majestic kauri on the Tapu-
Coroglen Road. Making our way to the square kauri, we were amazed to see several of
these gentle giants standing guard along the road.
Our feature artist, Charlotte Giblin has painted the unique ‘square kauri’ for the cover
of the Road Trip this issue (p25) and we also mention our visit (p30). We hope you are
enjoying our Road Trips (this is the fifth in our series) as much as we enjoy researching
and producing them. What a great way to learn more about our area – there is so much
to see and do right here at home on the Coromandel! Next issue we will journey from
Thames to Paeroa and the surrounding areas including the Hauraki Rail Trail.
We have had so many requests for past magazines, especially the Road Trips and
history sections, that we’ve decided to put together future compilations. First will
be all of the trips into a perfect bound book. Perhaps you have some great photos,
interesting info or special places to share that we did not mention or find. Get involved
– we’d love the help with our research!
We are pleased that so many of you are sharing how much you enjoy
. I was telling a friend about some of the calls and emails we get praising the
magazine. They found the comments so fascinating they suggested we share one in
each in each issue. This one came by post written in a ‘I love nz’ card from Clare in
Long live Summer, or at least the warm weather!
The “C oromandel Life” is a high class, beautifully presented
magazine. I particularly enjoyed the Spring/Holiday issue
for its historical articles on Kennedy Bay (I was a school
principle there), the maps of the Road Trip and the superb
photographs and artwork. It is a keeper for me.
I have already sent my copy to family in Sydney and would
love to send one to family in Maryland, USA, keep one to
show visitors, and send a copy to my sons in Rotoma.
The history of Kennedy Bay and the C oromandel is
fascinating. You are doing a brilliant job of showcasing
different aspects, that many long-time residents and/or
visitors are completely unaware of.
Thank you very much for your excellent work, keeping the
C oromandel in the public eye and affirming our pride in
being part of this lovely place.
Aroha, from C lare
