    Motoriki Reserve/ Star gazing at Tuapiro

    August 5, 2020 in New Zealand ⋅ ☁️ 14 °C

    This morning we checked out the campsite and had a wonder around town. We then went for a walk at Motoriki Reserve. It was a beautiful sunny day again today. We then went to the social for drinks. I loved how some of the chairs were made from cars. I sat in part of a mini and had a pina colada cocktail. Around 4pm we drove to 3 freedom camping spots all were full. We've never had a problem before finding a spot when we've wanted to freedom camp. Tuaranga is obviously very popular. We decided to drive 50 mins up the coast to a freedom camping stop at Taupiro Reserve. Luckily there were spaces when we got there. It was a lovely spot by the water. The moon was red and reflecting on the water. We also saw so many bright stars here. We enjoyed camping here overnight.Read more
