Some good news here is that a new cafe / restaurant has opened up at Waihi Beach Hotel, from all accounts it is wonderful. It has only been open a few weeks but is already talk of the town and several people have been there and they all raved about it very enthusiastically. We have a very nice guests from Atlanta, Georgia staying this week so tomorrow night we are all going to check it out and then go for a walk on the beach after dinner. We had a lovely young couple down from Auckland last weekend and they went to a concert at the Waihi Hotel and they also said it was great. They have live music most nights which is adding to it's popularity.
