This morning was almost perfect! It was warm, the tide was early, there was almost no wind! The only question was whether all the aches and sprains that have been bothering me over the last few months were going to make kayaking too difficult. They didn't! I had a great time - although I only planned a short paddle for this first morning.
I set off from the Mullens picnic ground and kayaked south around the mangroves that line the creek. This is looking nearly east into the sun and it is difficult to get more than a silhouette photo.
Paddling back around the point and along the deeper water of the creek it is always beautiful looking back towards the beach and the car park.
The creek winds back inland quite a way and I was planning on going up there a way to see what birds might be using that area.
Before I had a chance to go any further a small plane came in from the north and dropped down towards the small grass air strip which is just a little way behind the trees. The noise was enough to scare up another 30 or so Whimbrels that must have been roosting in mangroves further up the creek.
Back on the beach there were a couple of fellows just taking off on Paddle Boards. It certainly was a nice still morning for it.
Our World Tuesday.
