Another 38°C (100° F) day was forecast, just rounding out another week of heat. So what to do today ?. The last week had seen strong, hot winds blowing across the Adelaide Plains but today was different. NO wind or just a gentle breeze perhaps, so it was load up the kayak and hit the water.
And indeed there was NO wind or maybe just a wisp of a breeze, hardly enough to evaporate the sweat from the brow but perfect conditions combined with an extremely low tide to do a little exploring. The sky was overcast, covered with tropical layers swirling from the north. The horizon blended into the sky making an eerie landscape and the cliffs stood dark and quiet.
The water was crystal clear and you could easily pick out the bottom at 6 metres.
We explored a little along the rugged coastline.
We drifted along a little, with no plans to be anywhere at any particular time.
….and we were not the only ones enjoying the day.
We got ourselves in a few tight places with the slightest of swells gently moving the kayaks in and out of rock crevices.
It was a great day on the water.
We just needed one more thing..and there he was ..the kayakers “Seal of Approval”.
