Paddling with the Wind

It was a fierce wind that greeted us on Sunday morning at Garratt Road Bridge. Undaunted (and helped by the fact the wind was behind us) we lined up in our canoes for our trip up river to Ascot Kiosk. This kiosk has become a favourite with us, serving delicious breakfasts in a lovely setting beside the river.

It was a capable team of canoeists and we  made good progress, everyone managing to steer the canoes with the following wind. It was a quiet day for other boat traffic on the river, the less hardy being put off by the blustery conditions.

The sky changed several times during the trip, from blue to dark grey with threatening clouds.

However, there appeared to be no arguments in the boats and I heard no complaints about tiredness!

We arrived at Garvey Park in time for a delicious mid morning breakfast after which we decided it would be prudent to drive back to the cars as by now the wind was reaching gale force, or so it seemed to us! Another delightful morning on the river with Guildford Outdoors.

Our next Guildford Outdoors event will be a social bike ride, stopping again for brunch at our favourite kiosk! Places are limited, so you will need to register for the bike ride via eventbrite: https://lycra-free-bike-ride-garratt-bridge.eventbrite.com.au
