Towards the free-fire zone

Blogger isn't letting me post even a single hyperlink today, so I'm going to paste up some images taken several weeks ago during an expedition to the south head of the Kaipara Harbour, where the privately-owned Woodhill Pine Forest, a large and rather empty public park, a weapons testing range, and a very muddy lagoon all seem to overlap.

A friendly Department of Conservation ranger eventually sold us some oil and got us back on the road. DOC obviously didn't show the same kindness to the poor bloke who got stuck in the lagoon and ended up having to donate his car to the air force for target practice. ;)
