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 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 its popularity.
