Highlights included :
an early morning fog across the water.
very small fish in small schools jumping in the shallows.
large fish breaching the water.
birds roosting in the trees overhanging the water.
birds in flight - fast and slow
birds kicking on the water for uplift to begin their flight
the sand bank between the lagoon and the ocean.
the sunrise lighting up the scenery and bird life.
a black swan up close slowly entering the water as I paddled around a corner.
an egret as I paddled around the Bareena island. it just sat there on it's log perch and watched me from only 3 metres away.
the low water level exposing sand banks and shore lines that had been eroded deeply by wave action. there's quite a few trees ready to come down.
A relaxing easy going kayak.
