The Flying Tortoise. Freedom Camping At Rangiputa In New Zealand's Beautiful Far North...

The little beach of Rangiputa is situated in Rangaunu Harbour on the Karikari Peninsula in New Zealand's Far North.
The Maori meaning of the name Rangiputa is pull out a shoal of fish. There's much truth in that meaning.
The Flying Tortoise has been freedom camping here for a few days and will return.
Leaving the Far North isn't really a consideration.
I don't need much to have a beautiful and simple life and there's all I need to have a simply beautiful life right here...
