Mark and his lovely girlfriend came for a kayak with Pittwater Kayak Tours. A couple of his friends wanted me to embarrass him and say “I heard you were going to pop the question today”. It was just a bit of banter between friends. no one has got down on one knee just yet. who will be the first?
Just the drive up the Peninsular of Sydney’s Northern Beaches is a spectaclar tour in itself. Stopping at some of the beautiful beaches along the way including Palm Beach, Whale Beach, Avalon, Bilgola, Mona Vale, Narrabeen, Collaroy, Curl Curl, Freshwater and Manly.
Throw in a kayak across Pittwater, bush walk in Ku-Ring-Gai National park, a swim at a beautiful beach and then sunset in Mosman watching the sunset over the Sydney Harbour Bridge and its close to a perfect day for a local, let alone a friend visiting from overseas.
Jarrod and Stef came along for a romantic kayak together on Valentine’s Day. After bush walking in Ku-Ring-Gai National Park, swimming at Resolute Bay and then paddling back to Pittwater Park. I left them with a bottle of wine and a cheese platter to enjoy. Nice work Jarrod, definitely earned you some brownie points with Stef.
Elizabeth and her team from EMC came along for a team building session at the beginning of 2015 to help get her team working together and experience a fun day out together. At the beginning of each year the EMC team has a corporate event. Despite the bad weather on the day, her staff enjoyed it thoroughly and said ” it was the best start to the year so far”. Due to the bad weather we were unable to cross Pittwater, so instead we kayaked to Barrenjoey Headland and walked up to the lighthouse.
Many of the staff had no experience kayaking before and were apprehensive before leaving. Once we were on the water they felt completely comfortable and had a great time.
Joerg and his wife still made it down to Palm Beach for the sunrise tour despite sleeping through their alarm. It was a beautiful morning for a paddle. Then they were off to enjoy the rest of the day enjoying all that the surrounding areas of Pittwater has to offer. Excellent pubs, restaurants, cafes and of course the numerous beautiful beaches.
Sasha organised a group of her friends who live in and around Sydney to get together for a catch up. They enjoyed a paddle on Pittwater (although there was a bit of healthy competition between the blokes, and some of the girls). After the paddle they sat on the grass and enjoyed wine and a cheese platter as the sun set over beautiful Pittwater.
Chris and Anthony who are both keen paddlers brought their mum along for a paddle with Pittwater Kayak Tours. She is 74 years old and or should I say 74 years young. Jo was fit a s a fiddle and made the whole experience look easy. She is not PKT’s oldest participant and an absolute inspiration. She truly showed that age is just a number.
