The Flying Tortoise Is Now Freedom Camping At Mahia Peninsula's Oraka On The Famous East Cape...
It was time to get some flying time and air miles completed before returning to Haumoana and Te Awanga in a few weeks.
And now I'm at a little place called Oraka on the Mahia Peninsula at one end of New Zealand's famous East Cape.
I was up really early yesterday morning to catch the many stages of this stunning sunrise.
The estuary is beckoning me to come kayaking, there's flounder waiting patiently for me to catch them and hopefully there'll be some kite fishing and surfcasting too.
It's a beautiful place, a few baches around for the few local inhabitants, the council keeps the area mown and the freedom campers look after the area too. We know that there will never be any high rises, multimillion dollar mansions or shopping malls within a squillion miles from here and that's better than good.
Wish you were here...
