Little Cove

This morning we explored a small section of the east Australian coastline that is not frequently visited ...

King T caught a brace of sweet Bonito along the way.

The water conditions are fantastic.

One of the locals.

Harbour dawn

January's humid atmosphere has generated interesting visual effects over Sydney Harbour. In this example the morning rain clouds are dramatically back-lit by a rising sun.

This morning's paddle took us north along the Sphinxes.

Paddling before a sky of burnt umber to Shelly Beach where we snorkelled with eastern blue groper. Summer's warm sea currents having brought them back in to Sydney's coast.

To dive into the sea that the kayak glides over is to be enveloped by a parallel universe. Kayaking and diving are complimentary arts of the sea.

With the sea conditions slight we were able to land at the base of North Head and explore its miriade of rock pools too.

Chromodoris splendida.
Paddling back towards the harbour's entrance and into a freshening sou-easter.

Another fine morning concludes amongst the sandstone cliffs and sea gardens of Port Jackson.
