Turned up at the estuary 1/2 hour before high tide to find no beach and a
lot of cars and kit cluttering up the entrance. Parked on the road and had
brekky, then by 11ish the tide had receded enough to squeeze onto the beach
and rig up.
Out on the 9m and plenty powered, a few lulls and gusts but nothing major,
and as the morning went on the wind evened out and was about a smooth as it
gets in the estuary.
Chased Col up river and went as far as I ever have - almost lost sight of
the carpark. Sun had come out by now, 20 knots and glorious surroundings -
what a privileged place to be!
Worked my way back down to the van where there were maybe 10 kites and 1/2
dozen windsurfers enjoying the sun.
Played for maybe another hour in fantastic conditions. and only worn out
legs forced a halt a little before 2 o'clock.
Cannot remember a better day in the estuary and well worth 5 stars!
