Camping at Opito Bay

In the early 1960s a group of friends all in their 20s camped for three weeks over Christmas and New Year at Opito Bay on the Coromandel Peninsula. Now more than 50 years later many of the same group together with their children and grandchildren still spend their holidays at Opito. This book retells some shared memories of a time now gone and acknowledges the love and affection for all these friends including those who are no longer with us Doug Cliff Colin and Betty Moray and Sue Roger and David son of Keith and Ruth. With the exception of specific incidents this story is similar to those of many New Zealand families and friends who camped together in the 1960s and 1970s a decidedly more basic kind of camping than camping in the 21st century. The difference here is that one of those campers has brought together their stories and in so doing has described many many similar camping holidays relating to those simpler days.
