 **November 2010** Right so we bought a kayak on trademe a couple of weeks ago and we have a forecast 26 with little wind. So load up the Tonka with all the gear and set off for the East coast, but we got only as far as Cockle Bay Howick and decided to launch from there. The idea for the day was to pootle around the bay, just to get in the swing of things, but as we were unloading along comes Chris from www.nzoe.co.nz with a group of his fellow kayakers. "Why don't you join us for a trip" so we did. The excursion took us across the bay up the Whitford river down some narrow mangrove lined channels and ended up at Amey's cafe Whitford. Total journey about 14K return on a sit on kayak, all the others were using sea kayaks (much easier to paddle). Still a great day and excellent company. Terri moaned about her arms, legs and everything else all the way back! Double kayaks are known as divorce boats! **November 2010** Right so we bought a kayak on trademe a couple of weeks ago and we have a forecast 26 with little wind.
