I spent Friday afternoon kayaking at Rose Bay with my team and an agency. It looks pretty grim in the pictures, but it was a really warm day and the water temp was beautiful.
We spend about an hour and a half kayaking across the bay and doing some races. I thought I would find it easy because of all of my climbing, but it used totally different muscles and I could feel the burn pretty quickly.
I had a really great time and really enjoyed it. It was quite amazing to be so close the the water and to look around and see so many beautiful things across the harbour, like all of the Sydney icons and beaches.
We paddled from here directly across. I don’t know how far it was, but it certainly FELT like a long way.
These are the little kayaks we used.
The harbour – grey but still beautiful.
