Last year I became a lover of SUP. (Of what?!) SUP = Stand Up Paddle boarding.
I took a few friends to a beginner’s class at a place called Nashville Paddle Co. I loved it so much that I went back the next week with my daughter and then purchased an Unlimited Month pass for the 2 of us. I knew I wasn’t going to be able to afford another month x2, so when I saw them post a job opening, I leapt at the opportunity. It was perfect. I got to spend a couple days a week sitting lakeside, helping people on and off their boards as they came to paddle and loving every beautiful minute. I also got to paddle as much as I wanted for free. Win win.
This year I’m going back and taking on more responsibilities. In fact, I’m getting certified to be an instructor so I can lead some of my own classes. Some of the staff went for an evening paddle this week to enjoy the full moon. It was my first paddle of the year and what a way to start. The lake was so still and acted as a mirror for the big, bright moon. I love nature and I especially love water, so being in the middle of both during such a peaceful night was about as good as it gets (aside from the bugs).
