||Why do we paddle?
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
|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
