Can’t keep me off the water 🛶

I am a big fan of behind the scene shots. Garret (@wildhousemedia

run this sick drop. I am a big fan of the closer you are, the better the photograph. I would to tell you the boys made it through the falls unscathed, but that would be a lie... they went for a ride #behindthescenes #dump #crushingit
Who loves a freezing canoe ride?
Life on the lake. Incredibly peaceful. I’m sure everyone who visits, wishes that nothing will change at the lakeside in Pokhara. Perhaps it won’t too much, but land and property values have skyrocketed in recent years, and there are signs of corner-cutting in the local infrastructure that suggest there isn’t a strategic plan for one of Nepal’s key tourist attractions. See it while you can, in it’s current form 🏞 #lakeside #pokhara #nepal #travel #instagram #olympus #omd #insta #instagood #boat #peaceful #water #canoe #mountains
Bringing back #warriorwednesday
Sandra has been paddling for 17 years, and has been with the crew since 2011!
Coolest Paddling Experience: “My third (‘s a charm) Club Crew World Championships in Szeged and our Warrior 200m win. I was lucky enough to be ‘featured’ on the TVs and aside from being told I had the face of an athlete, the capture of my bewildered face sums it up. It only took 17 years to finally medal at a Club Crews. It’s one of my favourite moments of my paddling career.” •
Coolest non-paddling experience: “Becoming an auntie this year to my little nephew.”
Pretty proud of myself! My first wood project. I bought this canoe shelf that was painted blue on the outside and was an ugly dirty color. I sanded the hell out of it, stained it with ebony (I didn’t stir it so many that’s why it took a week to dry instead of the stated “one hour” of dry time?) and then applied a finish, fixed some loose bits with wood glue and voilá! Crappy canoe shelf turned into gothic window shelf for my pottery display! Bam 💥 #refurbishedfurniture #upcycledfurniture #canoe #shelf #ebonystain #diy
Find serenity for yourself this fall at Lake Placid!
Nestled amid the tree-lined peaks of the Whiteface and McKenzie Mountains stands a majestic outpost of rustic splendor, a modern tribute to a golden age of Adirondack history.
Real talk. Because my last post made me think hard .... .
🌿I’m saying this because I’m sure that I’m not the only one that has felt this way. ✌🏻this is a photo of me at 24. Canoeing to kill time alone while living in middle no where northern Minnesota (near 🇨🇦). Wondering why it’s so hard to meet friends as an adult when you move away from home. Thinking to myself, my boyfriend is away for work, I am away from family. It’s just me. I know no one. It’s hard to meet adult friends when you work all day and they don’t make tinder apps for finding friends lol (well maybe they do!). .
Fast forward 4 years and three other locations of moving in that time frame. Friend statuses have changed. My friends from my hometown have moved on. Ive been gone, I don’t blame them. I don’t get the inside jokes anymore lol I get it. I’ve made friends in my new areas only to move away again after a year each time. I’ve made warden wife friends who also have relocated or moved. .
Don’t get me wrong. I have great great friends. But making and maintaining friendships as adults isn’t easy. Throw in law enforcement wife (or firefighter or military or any job where your husband has crazy sporadic hours) where you find yourself at home alone watching others with their families is also not easy. .
Do me a favor. If you have felt any of the above feelings or thought the thoughts... know that you are not alone. If you are a wife of a cop and have felt lonely at night or during the day... know that you are not alone. If you are away from your family and get overwhelmed feelings when you see others near their families... know you are not alone. If you are a woman without kids and have been excluded from groups of friends with kids... know you are not alone. If you have wondered why others haven’t stayed in touch with you when you’ve moved... know you are not alone. If you just have a darn old time finding those connections near you.. you are not alone! .
Trust me. I get it. I have been there. If you need someone to talk to, shoot me a message & I’ll be there. Adulting is hard sometimes. And it’s hard to sometimes accept the changes. ❤️xox
Quando as pessoas são felizes, não reparam se é inverno ou verão.
Positive emotions at the Strait of Gibraltar 🇬🇮 today. In the morning we practiced how to go past the surf zone with minimum impact. The afternoon was all about FUN downwind practice. The waves were beautiful in the second half and everyone had a big smile on their face. 💨💦🏄😜☀️🤙
