Before football season begins, I wanted to go try out Paddle Boarding. I've seen people on the paddle boards going up and down Town Lake for the past year and I couldn't wait to try it out. We found a place on East Riverside that rented out the paddle boats for $15 an hour. I found a few places that were right on the water and they were all between $15 and $20 an hour. I can't imagine we would ever do more than an hour. It wasn't to hard to get up on the board. We started by sitting on our knees and rowing to get a feel for the boards. After we were comfortable we stood up and kept going :) I won't rat out who fell in the water once... but I'll just say I kept dry the entire time on the water ;)
I'm getting daring with my camera. I had it in a water proof case for most of the trip on the water but pulled it out for a few photo opportunities.

After paddle boarding we headed over to Takoba for brunch! Jim with his uber large drink
Surprisingly I had an excellent cup of Tomato Blue Cheese soup at a Mexican food restaurant. It was DAMN good and I'll be trying to recreate it once the weather cools down. I also got the pulled pork sandwich.... yuuuuuummmmm.... pulled pork!
Another excellent Sunday Funday
