Kavieng kanu

A recent trip for my work has taken me up to Kavieng, on the north-western tip of New Ireland, which lies off the north coast of the Papua New Guinea mainland.

I got up before dawn, borrowed an outrigger canoe and its single-bladed paddle, and wandered over the short distance to Nusa Island.

I think that this area of the world is pretty close to paddling heaven ...

A kayaker's dream ...

These pavilions are at the Nusa Island Retreat.

This was a nice way to start the day in PNG.
