PHOTO: paddling at sunset

Sunset paddling_1_c

Half of me was saying: is not worth it, the other half: don't be lazy...
I only had less than an hour of light left before darkness and I was not sure if getting the kayaks to the water and dressing myself was going to pay off the effort.
The motorboats gone, it was an almost windless evening. A couple of eagles were still soaring hoping to get dinner while small fish were jumping out from the golden water, in front of our bows.
The sky turned slowly a faint pink to later fade into a deeper purple.
There was nothing to disturb this idyllic moment.
All I could hear was the rhythmical, almost silent, gentle splash of my paddle.
The perfect way to finish the day.

  1. If that was this evening in Moreton Bay, the only reason we didn't stay out for the sunset was the fact that the missus was busting for a leak, plus we had animals to feed at home. It was a lovely day for it today. Then again, winter in Queensland, 90% of the days are perfect for paddling.
