Dragonheart Vermont Why do we paddle?
Dragonheart Vermont has taken on the sport of dragon boating for our health and well being. After the diagnosis of breast cancer, survivors learn how to embrace life again. Dragon boating helps you feel alive. Just imagine being out on a boat on Lake Champlain with the mountains and setting sun as your backdrop. Now imagine sharing this experience with your teammates. The fun of the sport is that it does not require great athletic ability. In dragon boating, no one team member shines. It is a true team sport. Timing is the key. Each paddler depends on the other to work together. Twenty paddles hitting the water at the same moment and propelling the boat forward is a thing of beauty. This synchronicity is health-giving and life-affirming.
Our Serenity Photo
A picture is truly worth a thousand words . . and the photo below evokes so many wonderful words to describe our first season paddling together. This photo was taken by Dragonhearter Penni Cross on one of our last paddles on our first season. We were enjoying one of those perfect September days. Mild temps. Blue skies. Mountain views to die for. Just as the sun was beginning to set, Penni shot the photo. Yes, perfect! We call it our Serenity Photo.
