Tucked away from the harbour's main channel is this quiet bay, framed by Angophoras and outcrops of weathered sand stone.
The water is clear and warm.

This morning's short adventure by kayak was up one of the Harbour's more interesting tributaries - Middle Harbour to Roseville Bridge.
With a deep low pressure system rotating clockwise off the east coast and a high rotating anti-clockwise in the Southern Ocean this morning, a Sou-south westerly was rushing between these two pressure cells and across the Harbour in gusts of 20 to 25 knots.
As we paddled into the subdued dawn light the harbour was a torn grey and white river of breaking waves and spray.
In the image above Tony and Luke raced across the harbour's messy surface with the large V-sails bent side-ways by the strong wind. The wind strength proved too great, however, snapping one of Tony's woven kevlar mast poles like a dry twig.

A handful of shells from Sydney Harbour - including a small Abalone and a piece of Cowrie shell which are evidence of Sydney's temperate maritime climate. A blend of Coral Sea waters (delivered by the East Australian Current) and cooler southern seas when the EAC abates over winter.
