Fantail Bay Update

So here I am as Camp Host at Fantail Bay on the beautiful Coromandel Peninsular. It is a popular spot with motorhomers and campers and is beautiful, quiet and a great fishing spot.

So far I have managed to catch a lovely kawhai which we smoked and had in a lovely white sauce with fresh parsley.

We being my sister Brenda and husband Roger who have been here for over a week. They leave on Tuesday after their two weeks is up.

There have been the most amazing sunsets here as well.

There is not a cloud in the sky and already the temperature is soaring!

So a bit of lawn mowing again today and then swimming and fishing on the menu!

It has quietened down with only 5 other camp groups in on more than an overnight basis. So it has been a very easy job and I have managed to get a great deal of the campsite mown as people leave and I can mow their patch!

Before I close off, a little tip for those of you with side lockers with catches that jam if the contents shift and block the movemet. Glue a little rubber buffer onto the inside to protect the catch and you will not have issues. (Tip from a camper)

Safe travels everyone.
