    Not on a SUP for a change, but what an awesome day for it. Hottest weekend of the year so far, 30˚C+ and even though it was super windy, on the water it was still stinking hot! =D Paddled from Children's Bay to Red Point and had a good look on the rocks. Saw lots of little fish in the water at Children's Bay that morning but not so much in the heat of the arvo. No stingray or dolphins either :'( But the water was the clearest I've ever seen in the crater and I really wish that I had my snorkelling gear with me (and that the camera didn't die 5min into the paddle :'(!!! So gutted!!!). Bit of a challenge in that strong wind but good fun surfing the waves in the harbour though I reckon the SUPers we passed on the way out didn't have such a fun time :p Was actually glad to be sitting in and not standing on a SUP for once =D Nice to see more paddlers coming out that way and the rental guy being so busy on such a lovely weekend =)
