KINCUMBER CREEK KAYAK - 23 JUNE 2016
I launched form the boat ramp at Carrack Road, Kincumber.

It started in mangroves with the sun nearly directly in my face. This made for a dazzling display of light effects during the paddle.
After a short time, the shoreline on one side was dominated by homes, short piers and lawns. The other side was mangroves and reeds.
A one point the waterway widens and a car park and the back of shops can be seen. the last time OI was here there was a lot of rubbish and discarded boats. Now, they were all gone. :)
The creek narrows for here with overhanging branches. It is dark and in places the vegetation had grown across the water.
A fun 3.17km kayak with a sense of adventure in the upper darkened area of the creek.
