I'm making the most of the tides, sun and lack of wind to go for a sifty paddle in the Waimea Estuary.

I'm feeling small right now, it's crazy flat today :p

I do know I'm making progress cos I can now see the particle board factory near Richmond.

This is so damn sifty :thumbsup:

Ah ha! I can see the Rabbit Island bridge. Which means I'm getting somewhere, probably. Now I'm going to use Google Maps on my phone to work out where I am :p

According to tide charts the tide should be turning about now. So as my puny cycling arms are feeling it I'm going to scoot under the bridge then catch the estuary flow. Which will hopefully take me back home :thumbsup:

Hopefully :paranoid:

Doh! Being a n00b to this sort of malarkey I hadn't quite thought through the whole turning of the tide bit. So I got a nice fast estuary flow for oh, say 200 metres and now have to paddle all the way home with no cunning tidal assistance. Stupid nature, how dare you make me work?
