      *** Not an actual paddle ***
      Even though it would have been a neat day for it, I didn't actually paddle today but the drive/walks gave me the chance to scout some cool places on the other side of Lyttelton Harbour since I normally get out at Cass Bay on the northern side.
      Naval Point where the yacht club is in Lyttelton & Cass Bay are the best launching spots on the northern side (preference for Cass Bay as more scenic, easier to park and not as close to the port traffic!). Governors Bay at the bottom of the bay is quite muddy and shallow so even though there is plenty of places to park it's probably not the best place to launch. Found the neatest wee spot in Charteris Bay where if you park by the boat ramp you can then paddle along to the boat sheds (to the right heading towards the head of the harbour) or also to Quail Island in the middle =)
      If you don't want to drive all the way over, there is a ferry linking Lyttelton to Diamond Harbour on the south side, however it is a passenger ferry only so unless you have an inflatable board packed in a bag or there is no one on the boat that might be a tricky option!
