I'm headed to the back yard to camp with the bandicoots & listen to the boobook owl, Get in touch if you'd like to show me your beaut' camping spot. I'd love to see photos of you enjoying your campsite - don’t forget to #greatbackyardcampout #NaturePlayWA.  Mark yourself as "Going" to the event, and find out more 

Check the fire regulations on the day, but if you can have a camp fire, it's a great way to tune in to the earth, connect with warmth & reset.  Smoke out those COVID19 stresses - Let's GO!

I began 2020 in India where I participated in the Muziris Paddle Event in Kerala... 64 kayakers, several SUP participants and 1 sailing boat journeying along on a 40km stretch of the Kerala Backwaters over 2-days...

I volunteered for this event as the lead paddler.  It was interesting to help Kaushiq & the Jellyfish team with the event and to see kayaking being promoted in India.  Most impressive, was it was a totally plastic-free event.

Get in touch if you'd like to invite me to your future event - I can attend in-person or via an online connection.
