Viv and Ed Eliot are a Coromandel couple living a true Coromandel Goodness love story.  This is the story of their passion and commitment to two coastal locations: Tairua, on the Coromandel Peninsula, and a small island southwest of Timor, Indonesia.  This is the story of their simultaneous connection and contribution to both places.
