Settled on SUP

I lifted these lines right off his blog.  What a great adventure.

“After a 4 1/2-month bicycle expedition around northwestern Europe, Joshua Sivarajah and his pint-sized paddling partner, Nero, weren’t ready for the adventure to end. So, they swapped bike for board, and embarked on a 1,777-mile journey down the Danube River—the continent’s second-longest river, nicknamed “Europe’s Amazon.” Photo: Joshua Sivarajah/ULI”

I found the site by looking for SUP sites, and sure enough he rides a SUP in some pretty interesting conditions.

As it turns out Joshua did some humanitarian work while on his trip by serving sandwiches for the Syrian refugee crisis.  Check it out here.

Whales Can Get Too Close

You remember Whale SUP?  Of course.  It was the last post.  Well, whales are wild, right?  You knew that.  From time to time it’s possible that humans get ever too close to a wild thing and pay a price.  Not that I blame them.  Who wouldn’t want to get close enough to hear them breathe?  To touch them.  To stare into their eyes and feel that primal connection.

Just down Hwy 1 in the Monterey Bay this encounter got a little too close.
