Christmas Lights Paddle – Mooloolaba Canals

Tuesday Dec 10th 2019

Report by Dave Pass.

Lights, Lights and More Lights is how the promo went and Lights there were!
6 pm was the time to meet but by 5pm most were there and well into setting up their craft.
20 paddlers were expected, so 12 large pizza arrived, soon demolished by the 30 paddlers there by 6pm.

Light fading as 7pm approached and consternation by those with a ‘ solar ‘ set up.
My Lights Don’t work!! (they did work as dark came on)

All in order, the colourful armada, lights from stem to stern and up the masts, set off on time with Dave leading and Paul and Jim C paddling like drover’s dogs, keeping the mob together.

A big cheer as we entered the first bay and were greeted by one of the best displays of the night and the two blokes who set it up on the dock to share our banter.  By the third bay, half the group had no idea where we were, but that did not dim their enthusiasm.

We paddled our way from light show to light show, each display trying to outdo their neighbour, until we reached the end of the main canal at Stewarts Hotel, then back down the other side to our launch site by 9pm.

Good weather, great company and many laughs!!
We will do it again next Christmas.
