I launched to water from Patonga Creek and crossed over to Pittwater, following the edge all the way to Morning Bay. I stopped at Resolute Beach for a break (beautiful little beach all for myself). 10 to 15 knots winds, wonderful sunny day, I took another stop at Morning bay. Checked out the waterfall here but it was not running. Never the less it was interesting landscape at low tide. I had company of a family with a dingy during my tea break. Although I wanted to reach Scotland island, I could have been late to return in time.
On the way back, there was not much to see at Palm Beach side of the Pittwater. I took another break at Palm Beach. It was rather crowded but very relaxed atmosphere. Following the edge around the Barrenjoey Head, nature reserve area was beautiful but it was wrong planning on my behalf, i should have taken a break here instead of Palm beach. Perhaps next time. With weather holding well, about a meter or two swell, it was time for me to do the circumnavigation of the Lion Island as I always wanted. As I left Barrenjoey Head on glassy water and came closer to south side of the Island, I noticed the surface of the water on the horizon has changed. Realising that the wind is coming I paddled nervously alongside the edge and sure enough wind picked up and water turn into washing machine. Although conditions were not so dangerous I was by myself and there was not many boats around but I was determined to continue. As I turned to the north side of the Island conditions even become more interesting but there was a fishing boat not so far and I continued my journey successfully.
This was a long paddle by all means for me at this stage of my experience. Definitely a first 39K in a day paddle. I was tired but content experiencing the beautiful Pittwater and the wilderness of the Lion Island. I guess I needed a long paddle to be on my own in these beautiful little beaches to let go of a long time family friend Geoff who has passed away suddenly two weeks ago at the age of 50.
