One of the best things about going to Wisconsin is that there are so many fun and vacation-like activities to be done. Fishing, swimming, canoeing, kayaking, biking… you name it. And for the past few years, stand-up paddleboards have been added to the mix… rented from a local outfitter for the general enjoyment of all.
It is, naturally, a bit tricky to get good blog photos of watercraft, so I paddled around right off the end of the dock to take these pictures. In reality, though, a nice paddle outing usually involved an excursion around the bay and over a sand bar to the forested point you see behind me in the picture. Although they were a bit daunting at first, the paddleboards are remarkably stable, and paddling around the lake on a still morning is quite the treat.
And as a side note here: can we just take a minute to acknowledge that looking at photos of oneself in swimwear is quite the challenge? I was really pleased with how all of the photos in this mini-shoot looked at first, but in choosing for this blog post there was a lot of careful selecting around ones that made it clear exactly how many cups of iced coffee and servings of ice cream I’ve had lately!
