Another pretty picture

Just another picture of paddling. Paddling is a very popular sport here on Oahu. My daughter just joined this year and really loves it. It is very relaxing watching the paddlers. I don't think it is very relaxing being one of the paddlers. This is a very tiring sport. It requires a lot of physical effort, but the payoff is winning. Her boat does pretty well usually coming in 3rd out of 10, so she is happy with this. Hopefully my hubby will not have to work his first weekend home and he can enjoy Saturday's meet. This is something he would of missed had his tour not been cut short, but by the Grace of God he will get to see the last few meets. What a nice surprise.

Christina, what a beautiful photo! So wonderful, for sure, that your hubby will be home in time to watch your daughter's meet!

I have always heard that Paddling requires immense upper body strength and that timing is essential as they all have to row in unison! I am so happy things have changed for the better for you and your family! :)

That's a great picture Christina. I'm sure that has to be a difficult sport. Your daughter does very well. I'm so glad your hubby will be there. You must be so happy to have him coming home.

How nice that because of unexpected changes, he'll get to go to some of her meets. I can certainly see why this sport would be popular there.

Beautiful photo. That almost sounds like dragon boating which is very popular around here. Except we do it on lakes, not beautiful oceans. (c:
