We Made It!

Today we crossed Banks Strait and landed on the shores of Tasmania. The conditions were just right; rough enough to feel like we earned our passage but not too rough so it would make us regret it, but let me say, you wouldn't want to be out there at the wrong time. The energy was just amazing, the 5 hour crossing was like a non stop surf session. Both the wind and seas were on our beam for the most of the time and you had to remain alert all of the time constantly trying to work with the water's energy. This is one paddle we will never forget.When we approached Little Musselroe Bay, we saw John and Damian standing on a rock waving at us, so we knew we were in the right place and were relieved that we weren't faced with a huge surf landing. When we got out of our kayaks, we barely had enough energy to unload our kayaks and carry everything up the hill. Fortunately for us, this time we had two extra helpers. Actually, I barely have enough energy to write this report, so on this note, I thank you for sharing our trip with us and look forward to showing you some of the many photos taken on the journey. Good night.
