My wife and I moved into Breakfast Point in 2002 and joined our Probus club in 2017. I loved the fact that we are being surrounded by water ways and wanted to buy a runabout.
I attended a number of boat-shows and finally thought of something simpler, which could be easily towed to the water. I met up with some people from the Kayaking group over coffee and rushed out to buy a kayak. What I bought was more suited for a professional and not for a beginner.
That beautiful ocean going kayak toppled on my first day out and filled with water! The silver lining was that I found a guru (in Mick), who with Chris helped me learn the ropes and find the right kayak for me.
Along the way I was helped by Trish, Shirley and others and I am now enjoying kayaking so much!
A person paddling on the river can observe closely the beautiful and breath-taking landscape (or should I say waterscape) around Breakfast Point. Appreciate the beautiful houses, gardens, small bush areas along the river banks in serene bays like Morrison Bay, Glades Bay, Five Dock Bay and Hen & Chicken Bay.
One sees a different perspective of the riverbank from water level compared to the road side.
Aren’t we blessed to be living in this beautiful part of Sydney and be part of a friendly community made possible by our Probus Club with so many Interest groups?
My answer is – I, truly, feel blessed.
