On a crisp clear Sunday morning fourteen of us met up on the muddy banks of the Moore River near Woodridge. We set off under the leadership of Gisela assisted by Geoff P, and headed towards Guilderton about 7 km away. With lovely sunny blue skies and little wind, we enjoyed a leisurely paddle and had opportunity to spot an osprey and nest, a flock of relaxed pelicans, a heron, cormorants, a purple swamphen and many birds for which I don’t know the name.
Despite the plug having been pulled on the river the day before (the sand bank broke), there was enough water to stay afloat. We enjoyed a short walk and a relaxed lunch at the scenic river mouth before making our way back up river. It was a great day out, with fine company and a good supply of delicious cakes! by Lyndal
