The Hillwood Festival was terrific. Fantastic weather and a lovely venue with a great variety of activities on the water and off. The water was so refreshing on such a HOT day and we were able to keep ourselves well and truly damp while in the river.
We had no trouble paddling to Egg Island and back and did lots of dragon boat salutes and other fancy bits for our audience.
On the long paddle back to the boat ramp we realised it wasn’t getting nearer … the wind was blowing us back as fast as we progressed, so the safety boat towed us the last bit. They’d been itching to do something so this worked out well for all.
Needless to say we weren’t feeling up to participating in the kayak and canoe events after this…maybe next year?
