Paddle boarding in Progreso

We have been lucky enough to have a paddle board stored at our house and have taken it out to the Gulf every once in a while. This day we took grammy out to the beach with us while she was here on her three week vacation. While she did not stand and paddle around, she certainly had a great time floating with the board!

Evan and Noah took off like a couple of experts, it has taken me a little more effort and practice to get my balance… I guess I am a little top heavy. But on my second day I was standing up and got to watch 6 manta rays swim in circles around the board. They were only about the width of the paddle board, black on top, silvery white on the bottom with two horns sticking out from their heads. It was quite spectacular to watch them flying through the water with their wings breaking the water. Of course I did not have a camera with me, but now we have borrowed a water camera so hopefully I will get the chance to board with these amazing creatures again.

    Looks like great fun! And to think, you can probably do it year round since the Gulf doesn’t freeze. Ha ha
