Day 208, Thursday, 13.08.2009

This was an easy, lovely paddle along steep red sand cliffs. At some point, marked clearly as a “sandy water area” on my map, I saw on the horizont a *yellow* lin ecoming up. I was hoping that the sand wasn’t dry as it looked like from the distance, forcing me in a wide berth around […]

Hundreds of cormorants are living on that beach! I had a nice rest day! The sky was kind of overcasted all day, so the tent didn’t get too hot. I was chatting on my cell phone from the high red dune all morning with various people, had a nap on lunchtime, and climbed the dune again […]

John, vice president of the Carnarvon rescue team, picked me up at 5.45am to be ready to launch in first light at 6.30. Three guys came out again with their rescue boat that early morning, thanks for that! Once we left the harbour channel, I was aking them if there was enough water to cut straight across […]

Patience…  […]

It was a calm, quiet Millpond paddling day way offshore along sandy beaches and dunes only. Boring? Yes…if there wouldn’t have been the whales spouting and jumping, and some big fish frequently jumping as well. Pure, simpe nature, and I was stopping quite frequently to simply watch and listen. Eventually I was in cell phone range, […]

A stranded whale, spouting high? No, just Point Quobba blowhole…   The scary launching through the dumper of Red Bluff was not tough at all that morning, when you have a bunch of helpers coming along to give you a good push! All my dinner hosts and two more guys with their kids came down […]

  I should have signed up for that – if they would do a “kayaker recovery massage” as well? And I wonder what the “other body treatments available” were all about??? Maybe they were for sexy male’s surfer’s bodies only…     I did well on taking off paddling today – the winds felt strong […]
