This past weekend (wow, we're talking about an event in August now, not July!) I went stand-up paddle boarding with a big group of ladies from work. It was something I've been meaning to try and had wanted to do on the French Broad back in Asheville, so I was pumped when the trip was planned. (I was especially excited for the group rate.)
Anyway, it was great! The instructors were really good at explaining everything, and it was fun to try something new. We were taught the basics for about an hour, and then we kind of aimlessly paddled and floated around the lake for a while. A good amount of us just kicked back and stretched out along our boards, catching some sun. The weather was perfect! It was 9:00 and plenty warm, and the water was just cool enough to be refreshing but not cold.
Now that I've digressed into talking about the weather, let's have some photos. I'm the hussy in the black bikini.
What a photogenic lake and group of coworkers :)
