Trip to Coromandel

                        Trip to Coromandel

My holiday trip took three and a half hours to get there
from Auckland. We walked  for long time and saw olden day metal
and they used to dig for gold. My whole family went and my dad's friend.

First in the holiday we woke up early in the morning,
got changed and filled our bag with  bottles of water.
We also took some food for us to eat. We got everything ready
because we were going on big trip to Coromandel. In the olden
days people use to get gold at Coromandel. There are big mountains  
there too.

It took a long time to get there. It was three and a half hour drive. . My dads friend came to join us on our trip to Coromandel, we were going on a van but my dads friend went on his car. On the way we found somewhere to stop and eat.We parked our cars and got out and ate. We were eating sandwiches, they were healthy. My sandwich had beetroot and lettuce, blue cheese, it was a yummy snack.

After we ate we started to drive again it was a very long ride.
Then finally we made it to Coromandel. All of us got out
and looked at the river. It was a big river with large rocks. Then we went to the map because my dad's friend was talking about where we are going to go. later on we started to walk up the mountain.
It was a big mountain to walk up, some of us got a little tired but
we still walked. When we were walking we saw a tunnel. It was where the people used to dig for gold in the olden days. My dads friend got torches out of his bag for us to use in the dark tunnel.
we walked through the tunnel. There were two tunnels. We went to the one that leads you outside. But then a lady came to us and said you can’t walk over here
so we had to go all the way back.

After that we drove back home. I was so tired when we got home, I went to my bed a fell in it.
And my first time going to Coromandel.
It was the awesome best trip.
