6 Dec 2014: At 5.30am the sky looked threatening with low steel coloured clouds lingering overhead. I paddled down into the Molonglo from the East Basin to watch the Burley Griffin Canoe Club prepare for their 24 hour challenge and was welcomed by Charlie Honker and his family of gaggling geese. The conditions were ideal in the morning with calm water and no wind but the weather soon moved in and Canberra was dealt a drenching.
It was such a subtle start
It was an EPIC beginning to the Burley Griffin Club Canoe 24 hour Challenge this morning
Say hello to Charlie Honker the protector of LBG
