Gale Warnings in Force
Left Taumutu 7a.m. Friday morning for a very long days paddle, finally arriving at Flea Bay at 7p.m. Off to another early start today to try and beat the weather but, after attempting to round Pompeys Pillar, we decided to turn back to Otanerito Bay. What a great spot!! We have a cabin booked for tonight and if this weather keeps up we may be here for 2 or 3 days. We helped a couple of locals get their boat off the beach and they very kindly offered us the use of their car to drive to Okains Bay, venue of the Canterbury Seakayak forum. David, from Canoe and Outdoor World, is expected to be their with our next food box and we are looking forward to some scotch fillet steak.
