paddleboarding some more

We went paddleboarding at Millenium Park again. This was the third time for us after paddleboarding in the Caribbean and at Millenium Park last year. (paddleboarding again) There’d been talk that we might do it again on our next cruise and I figured that I could use more practice climbing back on the paddleboard.

We pushed off the shore and climbed onto our boards. I was kinda wobbly until Pam pointed out that I was too far forward on the board. I backed up a bit and the board seemed suspiciously stable. I started paddling around the lake/pond. I had a couple of moments where it seemed like I was about to fall in. Instead, I bent at my knees and hips to lower my center of mass and stayed on top of the board.

After paddling around for a while, a woman in a canoe called to me: “Are those things hard to learn?”

I thought so but I answered, “On my first two tries, I spent more time climbing back on than actually standing on the darn things. This is my third attempt and I haven’t fallen so far.”

At the end of the rental time, I got back to the dock without once falling into the water.

I’m as surprised as you.
