New sea kayak

This weekend we went up to the factory in Palmerston North and picked up our new double sea kayak - Betty. The frustrating thing was that on Friday night the weather in Wellington was idyllic, warm, sunny, and flat as a mill pond - would have been the perfect evening for a paddle around the harbour - indeed a few people were out in their kayaks and the sailing boats were struggling to finish their races. Needless to say the weather on Saturday was far from ideal to take our kayak on her maiden voyage - but we still made it out for a quick spin in one of the local bays trying to hide from the gusty northerlies. Sunday's weather was even worse....

Actually out on the ocean

Looking forward to a few more sunny calm days in Wellington over the summer to get Betty out on the water again!
