Lisl: Looks as if they may be going to race each other.........
Did you and Philine plan this?! smile Very nice shot, Lisl!
Lisl: No! That is really weird, Elizabeth
I love it. Beautifully composed.

they have exceptional balance

pretty capture
Lisl: I couldn't begin to try to do this, sherri!
Jolie photo, on voit de plus en plus de paddles.
Lisl: Yes - they are becoming quite popular

I am thinking of getting one of these..I do wonder if it comes with a craft as that paddling might be sun, too!
Lisl: Have you somewhere close to try it out, Ray?

The joys of summer, now fast receding..
Lisl: Too fast, Chris - and autumns storms in September. Never happened when I was young!
You and Philine are on the same page today, Lisl...and I bet you didn't even call each other! smile
Lisl: Just a coincidence, Ginnie - very strange, though
Like I said to Philine, this looks like fun, Lisl... I bet it is a good training of the leg muscles and keeping your balance...
Lisl: I guess they only try it when the water is very calm

Oh, Lisl, we are on the same page today! Your ladies look more fashionable than my 'father and son'.
Lisl: That's very strange, Philine

What has got into all these people with this standing up paddling business?
Lisl: Cheaper than the ferry?
I like very much the color of the water and the light on these two sportswomen. The paddle is practised on my lake a lot
Lisl: Thank you, Marie - this was taken in Bristol Harbour

A pretty capture indeed. In Mechelen (Belgium) I saw about 10 girls on their boards in a canal doing what looked synchronised dancing.
Lisl: How amazing, Louis!

One looks as though she'd rather be somewhere else. Nice capture Lis.
Lisl: Thank you, Hugh - perhaps she was new at it
I posted a picture a while back of two people doing this at Studland Bay, when I saw them I thought what a good sense of balance one must need to do it.
Lisl: I think I remember it, Brian. And yes, what a sense of balance!
i tried it a bunch of times and concluded that balancing activities are not my strong point, Lisl!
Lisl: At least you had a go, Ayush!

I always think that this looks easy. I'd like to have go but the water has the dead calm and no mire than around 3ft deep.

Philine has paddleboard post today, too.
Lisl: Yes, she has. Can you swim, Alan?
these lovely ladies have good balance Lisl... love the colours especially the blue of the water....petersmile
Lisl: They are really god at this
Do you think they count as boats??
Lisl: In my book, they do!!
