We had a mixed group on this paddle with people from all over the world. It was a typical Winter’s day with blue skies and little wind. We paddled across Pittwater and took the shorter bush walk from Resolute Bay up to the top of 3rd Head. We checked out the Aboriginal Cave on the way up, with hand prints are believed to be up to 2000 years old. Everyone had a great time and got along well together.
It was one of the coldest mornings this winter when I met Malini and Adam at 6am for a sunrise paddle. There was a howling wind and it was 6 degrees. These two were still keen, so we set off and despite the cold weather we still had a great time. A nice hot coffee at the end of the paddle has never tasted so good.
A good mate of mine had his brother-in-law Joe, out visiting from England for a couple of weeks. They got up early and we were getting ready in the dark. We set off at first light, so we could be at the top of 3rd Head for the sunrise. We also explored the Aboriginal Cave near the top of the Resolute Track. We then went down and did a bit of Yoga on the beach. I’m hoping to introduce a sunrise kayak with a yoga session led by a qualified yoga instructor to our list of tours soon.
National Parks week ran from the 7th to the 15th March, 2015 this year. To help celebrate National Parks week, PKT lowered its prices to just $40pp. Loads of different groups from all walks of life came together to enjoy evereything that Australia’s National Parks have to offer. Paddling on Pittwater in single and double kayaks, bush walking in Ku-Ring-Gai National Park to West Head and swimming at Resolute Bay was enjoyed by everybody. We were blessed with beautiful weather the whole week.
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.
