Last year, after a few SUP lessons with the Paddleboard Orlando, we decided to buy our own paddle boards. We felt confident enough to manoeuvre the board (honestly it’s not very challenging), we were reassured by our instructor that we had nothing to fear from the aligators (as long as we stay active). Since then we have a new Sunday morning ritual: after a late breakfast and after the New York Times has been read though and through, we put the board on the car and go for a long stroll on the lakes.
We like looking at (and commenting) all the front-lake properties. But the best things are the encounters with the wildlife on the lakes: there’s a couple of pelicans flying very low above the water, there are several hawks nests with chicks, a few white herons. It is very pleasant and calming… until late morning when the boats and jet skis start appearing, making big waves, and then it’s more challenging to stand up paddle board, and it’s time to go home!
Enough of my travel posts? I promise my next post will be about something crafty :)
