A hot sunny day.
I drove to Pourmalong Creek for a kayak. The creek runs into Lake Macquarie near Morriset.
I turned into Silky Oak Road, which is a private road leading to Morriset Psychiatric Hospital. Just after the bridge there is public access road - Eucalyptus Drive. There is plenty of parking and access to the lake.
I paddled north and turned into Pourmalong Creek. It was very quiet (except for the cicadas) and clean. Highlights included - a low bridge, kangaroos along the creek bank, eagle and other birds, fish and submerged and semi submerged logs that made for a good obstacle course.
The GPS map wasn't quite right on the end part of the paddle for some reason.
