Heading off overseas....

I'm sort of leaving the Country...or the land should I say....but will be back on land in 3 hours when I hit the South Island. Currently on the Interislander Ferry we're about to head into a punchy little Southerly it should be like a circus ride while out in Cook Strait...another one of life's adventures coming up. over the first

Flat out at work last week as is everyone....I did squeeze in a couple of paddles though which was great for the body and the soul. I had the pleasure of paddling with Dave Dellabarca out at Petone on Wednesday. He's a local out there and carves through
the swells around the Petone shoreline and the Hutt river in his multisport kayak with consumate ease. While many in the past have seen kayaks as the must have kayaking craft around our harbours people are slowing thinking about a surf ski as being a better option for the majority of our conditions in Wellington.

Digressing slightly Ferry trip was a breeze just a 2.5 metre choppy swell over the first half of the trip smooth sailing the 2nd half it once the swell angles improved, into the Marlborough sounds and smooth sailing through there. Stopped in Christchurch over night at Sis in laws place. At Twizel now weather fantastic in the McKenzie Basin...nice wee micro climate here. Total travel time to get here 3.25 hrs on the Ferry....4 hours Picton to Christchurch..... 3 hrs 15 min Christchurch to Twizel....kicking back with the demo craft registration at 4pm then briefing for tomorrows event which has a 7.30 am start!

Life's good.... enjoy your Labour weekend if you're in New Zealand....and your normal weekend where ever you are around the World.
