Right then, some of you may have been watching a kayak thread a few weeks ago. Sir Idiot mentioned he purchased an inflatable, his description inspired me to bring one with me.
I can't remember the last checked a bag but I decided being I wanted to explore the reef between Sandy Bay and Lighthouse Point I would suffer though the baggage ordeal... suffer I did. I had no idea ya gotta wait up to an hour on this end for the bags to get off the plane..shezz.
I got to West Bay at 2pm, was unpacked and inflated by 3:30. I managed to paddle up to Luna Beach in 42 mins. I had a lovely chat with a Canadian who runs a sailing school here by winter and in Montreal by the summer.. his boat is buoyed near Luna Beach.
I took my snorkel gear with me then realized the sun was to low in the sky for good visibility, in the end I enjoyed a very nice sunset while paddling back.
I am so excited about my new water freedom I can't hardly stand still.
I figure tomorrow I will sort out the "shezz, can I get back on this thing in deep water" debacle.
Any of you considering bring one down...don't think any more just do it.
Cheers to Sir Idiot! Fabulous idea. Thanks!
