      Finally a sunny morning with no wind in the weekend!! So good to get back on the water. Flat water, warm day, no one in sight, it was perfect! =) Saw so many fishes jumping out of the water and little flounders zooming away to hide in the sand. I have rarely seen the water so clear, it was like doing one of these glass bottom boats in tropical water (though some parts were really gross, the oil sleek was really bad and the smell wasn't nice either!). Also picked up a fully grown specimen of plastic bag -and can see how easily it is for marine life to get them confused with jellyfish :'( Yet this spot is still one of my favourites around as the ground below the water changes all the time with the tides and currents and no two days are ever the same for the view =)

      Beautiful morning paddle =) Nice to see a few kayakers out on such a nice day too. Went over to the other side of the estuary, did a bit of yoga in the middle since there was almost no wind and practice speeding on my way back. The river was flowing really fast after all that rain from the day before, so strong current and I was going against the tide as well! So great workout overall =)

      Took the kayaks out for a family paddle in the harbour... but my dog decided she likes the paddleboard better and refused to board =D So we ended up splitting up and taking turns paddling out/playing ball on the shore! =D Went from the yacht club to the Lighthouse and back. The weather was absolute rubbish most of the weekend sadly -gale force Southerly and rain/sleet/hail!!!- so no chance to go out early in the morning to find dolphins :'( better luck next time!

      From a couple of weeks back. A nice morning session though quite windy on the way towards the spit, took me forever to get around the corner so turned around and cruised the tide and wind back and went for a wee loop behind the jetty instead. Neat workout and nice the sun came out a little at the end =)

      Gorgeous day today, no wind at all when I left about an hour before high tide, and only slight chops on the way back. Lots of herons by the jetty when I headed out and a couple of shags in the water but otherwise no one else on the water today, everyone must still be up on the slopes :p Tried to do a bit more fitness than usual by paddling at a constant pace and work on speed but the day was so nice I kept stopping to take photos so gave up on that part halfway through and just cruised on the way back =D

      Woohoo back in the water! Getting some muscles out of their hibernation ;) Not the nicest morning at the start, bit choppy & windy when I headed out but once I reached the bridge end the sun made an appearance and the wind died down on my way back which made the return a lot more pleasant (and warm!). Lots of swans around this morning but no one else on the water. So good to get back out! =) Looking forward to longer and hotter days coming back =)

      **not an actual paddle** Gutted to have left the board home that day, but nice to see the usual paddling spot from above on such a sweet winter day (temp got to about 18˚C that day, insane!). Can not believe that no one was out on the water on such a beautiful, windless day and with the tide in as well! Fingers crossed for good weather this weekend to get back on the water!

      Such a beautiful morning when I headed out! Flat as, tide in, no wind, it was just perfect! Left from the jetty and up river into the Avon. Somehow past the bridge I ended up on the wrong side and in a cul-de-sac. So many birds though: gulls, shags, loads of black swans and a whole group of royal spoonbills (gutted my little camera doesn't zoom as they were truly majestic when they all flew off in front of my board!). Met a kayaker on the way back. Of course the wind had to pick up N/E went I was coming down so battled a wee bit to get back in to shore. Looks like summer is still hanging around for a while in NZ =)

      Introducing 3months old puppy Torx to paddle boarding =) A lot easier with another SUP pooch around ;) Both had lots of fun! And the water is still quite warm so that always helps. Great day out on the water!

      Doggy paddle = happy paddle! =) Went early to avoid the scorching heat that we are currently experiencing in NZ (on the plus side the sea water is the warmest it's ever been at around 21˚C!). Nice to see quite a few others out on SUPs/kayaks, probably the busiest I've ever seen Cass Bay. No wind, flat as, gorgeous day (was overcast at first but the sun quickly peeked out =). Didn't go too far as I had my favorite passenger with me but we had a lovely time practising balance, playing aqua-fetch and just paddling around =)
