Today took an interesting turn after work.

I met up with Aimee at Rock Cut Park.

Stand-up Paddleboarding FINALLY.

Like a boss.

Ha no. Not really. I didn’t fall in, but I was nowhere near a pro. It was much easier than I expected. I’m glad I didn’t fork over $50 for a lesson in Madison. Lessons are not necessary. However I need some more practice. Good thing it’s super fun. All I want to do is go back!! Aimee and I decided we could paddleboard every single day.

Thank you Aimee for keeping me adventurous. You’re awesome.

After SUP we headed to the driving range. Not only is Aimee my SUP buddy, but she’s my golf buddy too. After hitting nearly 3 buckets of balls, I called it quits for the night. I’m getting better. Hopefully I keep getting better so that when I golf next week I don’t make a fool of myself.

And she’s my froyo buddy! Frozen yogurt makes for an excellent dinner choice some nights. Ok, most nights!

Aimee and I are now addicted to paddleboarding. We are SUP buddies for life.

I totally agree that I could do SUP every day. It’s so peaceful out on that board, and you are literally on top of water. Amazing. and totally glorious!

It’s such an amazing feeling to float on top of the water!

That looks awesome! I’m glad you enjoyed it. Maybe I’ll have to try sometime. Also, super jealous of the froyo!

I <3 SUP! My mom got two boards for her birthday so I have unlimited access at our lake house!

Did your feet cramp up while paddle boarding? That's always my biggest issue. I feel like I could go forever…until my feet start cramping.
