Cruising with the captain

21 March 2013: What a brilliant morning!
The conditions were so good that I decided to take my four year old ‘Captain Nemo’ out for a float on the lake in my double sea kayak ‘The Big Bopper’. The conditions we perfect, excellent, wonderful and any other words that you can use to describe what it was like being out there. I hope you were lucky enough to be out and about this morning to experience it.

We never travel in a straight line.....It’s always a meander.

We decided to stop, have a break and throw the odd rock or ten...as you do.

But soon we were on our way with not a care in the world, our only priory was to kick back, relax, enjoy and have a laugh.

    • Hi Elizabeth, too true and so will I. This is just the start of many more adventures. He loves it. We always have little adventures on land, but now we will be able to explore a wider range now. This weekend (weather permitting) we will be cruising to Springbank Island here in Canberra for a picnic and more discoveries……..thing is I don’t know who is more excited!
