Today we spent all day Kayaking on a great tour a bit further up in the Park - going into all sort of coves and lagoons along the way (one of which only has enough water in it for 2 hours a day due to tides).
In the morning I was at the back of the kayak steering and lou was in the front and we did the bulk of the paddling. In the afternoon, after stopping for lunch in yet another beautiful lagoon and perfect bay, we put all the kayaks together in a line and we hoisted a sail on our oars and created a makeshift boat - was pretty crazy but got some good speed up. When we weren’t ‘sailing’ we were paddling as we did in the morning but we swapped over and lou steered. It was pretty comical actually because when we swapped over we no longer seemed able to turn right! - very zoolander! :-)
Following our left-turn-only trip back to the beach we chilled out, had a quick swim and got a boat taxi back to Marahau.
An awesome day! Now for some more nice food and finish off the bottle of wine we started yesterday
