It feels good to start a new year with a sense of normality. The usual family holiday, a whole host of caravan park friends but sadly a few of them are missing due to Covid travel restrictions interstate.
Yorke Peninsula is putting on the usual weather lotto where you never know from day to day or even hour to hour just what the conditions will be like. A calm and peaceful start to the day lends itself to a morning stand up paddle and a chance to just appreciate the serenity.
With wind predictions checked, then it may be time to take the tinnie out in the bay and try your luck at catching dinner. With any luck you can return with blue swimmer crabs, squid, King George whiting, tommies, salmon trout and garfish. Even better is when the crew return with a little of everything. Seafood banquet here we come. We are finding this year that there seems to be less crabs about and there is speculation that the cooler weather may have something to do with it.
The beauty of holidaying with a crowd is that even if the fishing is a little off, we never go short of good food. Daily themed banquets and shared food and wine are brought to the table to just celebrate and appreciate every day of good fortune we have.
I hope your 2021 is starting well!
