AUSTRALIA - DORA CREEK - KAYAK - 1 november 2013
Off for a kayak along Dora Creek.
I parked at Kelbrae Street, Morisset. At the end of the cul-de-sac there is a path that leads to the creek. There is a large grass area and a viewing pier on the water.
It is a good launch spot for Stockton Creek, Dora Creek and Sandy Creek.
It was a good paddle starting with perfect reflections as there was no wind. During the trip there were heaps of birds roosting on branches over the water and skipping over the water to gain flight. Lizards were abundant basking in the sun along the shore and on logs above water then diving into the water upon my approach. There was a great-looking walking suspension bridge and two road traffic bridges to guide under. The bell birds were belling and the cicadas were in rubbing their legs to deafening decibels in places.
A great peaceful and pretty kayak!
