On the water

I like being on the water. When I travel, my research almost always includes places to drink, places to dance, and places to stick an oar in.

My paddleboard is a Hala Atcha named Louise du Ha! Ha! (Look, I'm married to a Canadian. Sometimes it poutinizes my sense of humor. ;) )

I took my first whitewater SUP lesson in 2020. I was really bad at it, but it was still fun.
