Sunset SUP Session 7/27/19

Our Sunset paddle started out with dark clouds and lightning but ended with a brilliant sunset peeking out of the storm clouds. We were celebrating a 50th birthday this night too. What a cool family activity for your birthday.

Most of our group had never paddle boarded before so I gave everyone a lesson and off we went. Shortly after we paddled out into the river I saw lightning in the distance. We stayed close to our launch for the rest of our time on the water.

For quite a while it appeared that the sun was not going to show up for the sunset and then all of a sudden, bam! There it was! It just got more beautiful as sunset approache.

It was a fun night with only one person having splash down, aka falling in. Well done you guys, well done!

Manatee Pocket Mini July 21, 2019

The manatee mini tour is a great paddle for the beginner or the experienced paddler. 2 of my group had paddled before, the rest were beginners! We saw some birds, crabs and oysters on today’s adventure.

I gave the newbies their lesson and then we launched into the Manatee Pocket. Everyone was up and paddling right away.

We fought the wind going out but it wasn’t too tough. It kept us from being too hot. We saw a few Brown Pelicans and a Great Egret as we paddled along.

After we took our break at the halfway point we explored some more. We did some team building which ended in a splash or two and then we headed back in. We had wind at our backs for an easier trip back and we took a few short cuts under some docks.

Great job everybody!!
