Paddling is the most intimate way to experience the oceans, lakes and rivers. There is something very primal about being close to the water and moving under your own power. There are many variations on paddling from canoes to kayaks, rowboats or competitive rowing sculls. Feel like some team spirit? Try a dragon boat.

You can enjoy paddling by silently gliding along the glassy surface of a lake, shoot river rapids or pound through the surf! The possibilities of where to paddle and what type of boat to use are endless. Enjoy paddling through our contributor stories then go out and have at it!

The true pleasure, however, was getting back on water, teaching Yoga and stretch classes to paddlers and reconnecting with my paddling community. The camp is put on by Bow Wave Dragon […]

Spring – A delight to the senses.

Wow….it’s been a long winter! A great winter for sure… but definitely long. I guess that’s why I’m really enjoying this spring so much. Sure, it’s not balmy and sunshine everyday but most of the snow is gone and I don’t have to wear my winter coat and snow pants anymore. Yes! Every day I […]

In 2011 we were enjoying a super long summer like fall. In fact only the sun setting earlier gave any indication that it wasn’t […]
