I launched at Avoca lagoon just a tad before sunrise. It was cold and the water level was very high in the lagoon... nearly to the carpark!
It was a good paddle over areas that were usually dry land. I didn't wander too far as the wind was stronger on the exposed parts of the lagoon.
I did notice a couple of differences today:
a few fully grown casuarina
trees had collapsed into the water.
large parts of the reeds had died off, turning the water sludgy with dead vegetation
the bats weren't there in their roosting area
there weren't a lot of birds on the lagoon itself. some species were there high in the canopy.
It was nice to get out and paddle around... 2.52 km.
