We went sea kayaking this morning. It was a truly beautiful day
to do this amazing trip. The day was clear and cold. The water was
perfectly flat and freezing cold. Ten minutes of heaving the boat
across the sand flats of low tide and a couple of minutes of paddling
soon warmed up every part of me - apart from maybe the ice blocks
that were attached to my legs at the ankles. The view that the kayak
gave us was great. The birds, mainly shags, weren't bothered by
us at all and let us paddle to within metres of them before becoming
agitated. Lunch was taken on Adele island a few hundred metres away
from the mainland, but not before we paddled around the smaller
Fisherman island and caught a seal sunbathing on one of the rocks
at the coast!
The plan is to hang around here for the next bus, and some more people, to turn up. We'll spend the time doing a little walk up the coast through the national park.
