In the U.K. where I am from or for those of you in the former colony most Christmases are spent indoors with family and friends usually with snow outside and a fire burning. I haven’t spent Christmas at home for several years but this year had hoped to until Alan sent me some wonderful clients on Safari instead. Thus I “had to go” kayaking instead (I will wait for the awwwww heard around the world). With that offer it was certainly not worth staying at home for! So Teena and I packed up Aidan and presents and down we went to Fish Eagle lodge.
Christmas day was a beautiful sunny day that I spent kayaking with our clients. We spent the day kayaking – pulling up on forgotten beaches; warm, calm ,deserted … perfect places for some kayak play and instruction. We then paddled onto gigantic Moa Bay for some snorkelling ( we” just missed” seeing a Whale Shark there- later that day it got very affectionate with a fishing boat). Then we cooled off on a sand island that slowly disappeared as the tide came in. From there we hopped in our boats before the wind picked up and blew us back to shore. What a great Christmas day and there was still Christmas dinner and presents to go!
