Maiden Voyage on the Derwent River ...

Tonight was definitely a night to be inside out of the wind and rain.

So I took my new baby out for its maiden voyage on the Derwent ...


I love my new kayak, the only way I can describe the way it moves is with purpose, it is just so responsive, so comfortable ... and so fast.

I was taking an Intro to Wednesday Night Paddling group, so was only cruising along tonight, but I recall somewhere along the way with the rain falling heavily down, the mountain shrouded in cloud and the city subdued that I just stopped paddling, looked up and realised ...



... as much as I love travelling the rest of the world, this is home, and it felt good to be here.
