I needed to go and explore today, and I had planned on joining the Sea Canoeing Club's Trip out to Vensitat Point from Verona Sands, but it just didn;t happen, so I headed down there anyway and explored an area I've been meaning to get to for ages - namely to see how far up Garden Island Creek I could get, as well as have an explore around Randalls Bay.
Not much to say about the day really, the weather was perfect - flat and cool with a clear sky. I saw a few other paddlers out and about, and I did reach my goal of paddling up under the bridge on the rivulet (though got a few scratches on the bottom of my boat for the trouble).
Lots of birds around, and it was just a wonderful day. Shame about my camera, it really doesn't capture the wonder odf the day.

It was an easy/medium effort as I have a race coming up tomorrow. A lovely paddle.
