Paddle Boarding

I’ve been talking about paddle boarding for ages. I’ve been telling everyone and anyone how super keen I was do it, I’d love it, great exercise, etc, blah, blah, blah. It was all talk!

I’m a little scared of the ocean. Once on Moreton Island my Aunt and I swam to our boat which was anchored off shore. I’m 100% sure I had a close encounter with a shark on that swim. I didn’t see it or touch it but I could feel it in my bones, the sound of the breeze and the smell in the air. My Aunt felt the same way, so it must be true.

Anyway, there are paddle boards for hire at the end of my street, 300 metres from my door. Today, pumped up with adrenaline & hot from a bike ride, we decided to give it a go.

We went all out and kayaked in the bay too. Yeah, we are that brave.

We survived and I conquered a fear!!

What scares you?

  1. Yay, go you! My husband would be the same – terrified of sharks in the ocean. But I would give it a go! Who knew you could do this at Redcliffe? Great stuff.

  2. Well done, that looks like a lot of fun! how far into the bay did you get? It looks like you where heading out to the island!
