Both groups of seven paddlers had very pleasant conditions for our paddles on Remembrance Day…November 11.
The first group paddled from the Apex Park ramp at Dunbogan across Watson Taylor Lake & up the Camden Haven River to Kendall. The second group paddled from Kendall down to Rossglen & return.
The weather was perfect & the water calm on the lake. We stopped paddling at 11am for a minute’s silence ( as did the other group ) & the only sounds we could hear were birds. That moment’s reflection in such beautiful surroundings certainly brought the word ‘peace’ into focus & what so many men & women suffered through, or made the ultimate sacrifice for, so we today can enjoy days like this.
We stopped on the little beach on the point for a break & to enjoy the scenery; beautiful views back to North Brother & out across the lake. Back in our kayaks we headed up the Camden Haven & met up with the other group having their break at Rossglen. We all paddled back up to Kendall & enjoyed our picnic lunch at the little park. In one of the houses near the park there was a magnificent Illawarra Flame Tree in full bloom; they have been stunning this year.
Thanks to those who joined us & we hope you enjoyed the paddle.
