I pick up John and we went to Avoca Lagoon for a kayak. john is currently recovering from a leg injury also. he dropped an angle grinder on his leg... pretty gruesome injury... anyway this was his first kayak for a long time.
It was very still on the lagoon and a very pleasant reflective kayak. A few birds around - peahens, egrets and ducks - but it was mainly the quietness that was so appealing. Spent a bit of time watching the fruit bat colony.
The return paddle was in light rain... pretty. 2.13 km.
John's leg was fine.
We had coffee at Terrigal Haven and I suggested a bike ride next!
