I was lucky enough to sneak in one more visit to Ocracoke before Arther blew through last weekend. Always up for a new challenge, I decided to leave the safety of kayaking with Stormy and try paddle boarding on my own. There may be a reason why the name of this sport is so close to the name of a form of torture. I see now why doctors are so adamant that we keep up our skills at balance as we age. Balance was sure needed for this and as you can see, I need to work on that!
