The wind was blowing from the east and the surf was looking a little messy especially with the low tide.
I drove to Woy Woy for a kayak.
The sun was rising amongst the cloud cover, peeping through when possible. The water had a oily smooth look to it with the overall scene in varying shades of contrasting greys.
I followed the channel towards the east and from then on I circumnavigated Pelican Island and back into the channel.
Some of the highlights:
Small white sand beaches with no footprints.
Many waterbirds in flight and foraging amongst the shallows.
The mangroves blooming in small orange flowers.
Old barges moored in the channel.
Piers with just enough clearance to paddle under.
The wake of passing boats sending the water rippling and the kayak bobbing.
A jellyfish struggling in the shallow waterweed water.
A sandy coloured stingray gliding over the top of the dark green seaweed.
A pretty 3.88 km kayak.
