You can see the lat/long on the screen dump if you want a closer look. This is a fabulous place to hang out and watch these kayakers, esp during a summer evening with the low sun and good light. Really nice walk, about 45 minutes from Egmont where that suicidal fellow was launching off the pier. A clean warm lake for a quick dip on the way back. The shots here were taken on the flood, the optimum conditions, the spoil is at the opposite end of the narrows on the ebb and isn't quite as accessible.




Your turn, Fallard...
