Today I went for a paddle with my older brother Tony as he took his new 'ride on' "Prowler" brand Kayak on it's maiden voyage.
In an area off the Portland channel we found a break in the mangroves and went exploring.
We thought we might break through to another part of the harbour but were finally thwarted my a wall of mangrove trees.
So it was back to 'Pohutakawa Beach' (See three posts back, March 10th) for some lunch. (This time landing was easier as the tide was in).
Tony is pretty pleased with his new kayak. It's stable and slips along nicely. We are already planning our next trip.
