    Sometimes walking the dog is just the best excuse to go spot scouting! =) No board with me tonight but I found the pontoon at Owles Terrace and walked along the river for a bit. Perfect launch spot to paddle either up river towards Christchurch central or down stream to end up in the Estuary (watch out for the tide or you'll end up stranded at low tide). Will definitely return with the board =) Lots of ducks, swans and shags around. There is a board indicating navigation rules for river users by the pontoon too (as this spot is also used by dragon boaters and long canoes, so smaller paddle crafts must stick to the left bank either way).
