CENTRAL COAST - Piles Creek - kayak - 27 august 2011



I had an early kayak at Piles Creek.


Firstly, I paddled down a mist shrouded Mooney Creek until I reached Piles Creek on the left. The beginnings were mangroves and everything was very still and quiet.

The mangroves gave way in parts to rocks and forest. I continued until I reached the suspension bridge. At this point, the creek became impassable due to rocks.

I came ashore and wandered other the bridge and around the area.


On the return journey, I paddle up two creeks on the left bank. The first went a short distance and was blocked by a large fallen tree. The second, wound its way through mangroves and bushland. It was a lot of fun as it was narrow and slightly overgrown. I beached at the junction of two smaller creeks and had a walk around.


time: 2 hours.

CENTRAL COAST - Canton Beach - windsurf - 20 august 2011

It looked like it was going to be a great day windsurfing. The wind was howling all night. Unfortunately, it didn't quite do it. There were a couple of good runs but it was too up and down.

A few guys went out and had some fun runs.

CENTRAL COAST - Mooney Mooney Creek - kayak - 16 august 2011

 
I decided to join the toukley kayakers on one of their days kayaking.
It was a nice sunny day with a slight breeze. I met everyone at the creek and off we went.

this time, i went downstream. There were a lot of turnoffs amongst the mangroves which i followed and thusly lost track of the others.

It was sort of prehistoric paddling amongst the mangrove trees and a lot of fun. at one point, i came across a pocket of rainforest and had a walk around.

I caught up with everyone at the end and we had coffee and cakes.
fun day!

CENTRAL COAST - Katandra Reserve - Mouat Track - MTB - 1 august 2011

 
A warm winter's day!! MC and I went for a mountain bike ride on Mouat Trail at Katandra Reserve. Methinks we took a slightly wrong track as there were heaps of steps that were steep and close together. We manage to conquer the track until the end when MC took a fall. Another one bites the dust.
