They like DOING stuff! Fun stuff!
Geocaching...(even the same day of running a marathon)
Gardening (Even though they don't really like it)
And Stand Up Paddle Boarding!
Chrissy, Sharil and I met up for a lunch date of SUPing two weeks ago. I had done it once with my mom about three years ago and Chrissy and Sharil had never done it.
We saw jellyfish, that weren't dead or in an aquarium...we saw a seal that was hanging out in the Port of Olympia. It wouldn't let us near enough to really see it though.
I loved it! I want to go back and do it again.
|I had Sharil slide in under me while I was making a bridge on my hands and feet but if you'll notice I'm facing the WRONG direction for a two person plank!|
I wanted to do a 3 person plank but Chrissy said "NO" emphatically. Luckily for me Sharil isn't afraid of a little water like Chrissy is;) (Chrissy is a Biologist who hates the beach- go figure)
|Do you notice how far under the water the back of the board is? That's because I didn't factor into my plan how much two grown women weigh...|
I'll be honest, it got off to a little of a rocky start, but thanks to my constant reassurance of "We're Ok"..."Don't worry about that alarm, we're Ok!" We made it!
Tada! Two person plank on a SUP board! We're also famous now, because Urban Kayaking used this photo on their Facebook page. This dock is next to a restaurant with a deck, so all people enjoying their lunch were cheering for us!
We also got a video to make sure all the awkwardness was captured. The guy you hear in the background was one of the staff. He did a great job!
