November 9th - Albert Head and Witty's lagoon (#68)

Monica and I joined a SISKA paddle to Witty’s Lagoon from Albert Head Lagoon. Conditions were ideal. Overcast but calm. We made our way along the shore of Albert head, poking our noses into little bays and around islets. We stopped around Tower point for a brief talk about pillow basalts – the geology teacher in me could not resist! We then made our way around into the lagoon and all the way up to the waterfall which was in good flow. We managed to get some surfing in the small waves off the mouth of the lagoon. Lunch was on the beach at Witty’s and then we paddled down to the nudist beach  and then made our way back via the Haystock islets. I put in some static braces and rolls in at the end and was happy with their execution!
