Sunrise at North Curl Curl and Kayaking around Middle Harbor

We started our day at 430am today. Headed up to North Curl Curl, me to snap pictures and Jeff to dip in the rock pool.

Afterwards, we launched our kayaks in Ellery’s Punt Reserve by Spit Bridge. Our original plan was to do the Spit to Manly trail by boat, but the waves got a little hairy once we rounded Grotto Point, so midway to Dobryod Head, we decided to turn back to more protected waters instead. So we cut across to Balmoral Beach and hugged the coast back to Spit Bridge. Still feeling fresh, we continued going, up Middle Harbor and up Bantry Bay. It was such a serene paddle up Bantry Bay, a lush cove bound by Garigal National Park. All along the way and back, we couldn’t help but marvel how lucky we were to call this area our home for now, where there are endless waterways and rivers and coasts to explore.

Our longest exploration yet in our new kayaks. 3.5 hours, 17.4km. Can’t wait for next weekend, when we can launch them beauties again for a long paddle.
