My favorite holiday of the year is when we go to Bar Harbor. I am happy to shop and eat my way through the week, but my husband came back to the hotel with a gleam in his eye.
"I booked us to go paddleboarding tomorrow morning!"
I didn't even know what that was and was quite nervous at the prospect. But he was so excited, I joined him.
Hampton met us at Thorfinn. Her smile immediately put me at ease.
"Don't worry, we will take it slow," she assured me.
After fitting us to the equipment, we started out. The sky was pink and the only sound was the water against our boards and the gulls calling. It was so serene and peaceful, my anxiety quickly floated away.
Before I knew it, Hampton had led us out along the beautiful coastline. We had the world to ourselves--and I never fell!!
I cannot recommend Thorfinn enough. They were so friendly, knowledgeable and you can tell they really love what they do. And now I do, too! Since my lesson with Hampton, I have bought a used board and have done many trips on a lake by our house. It is a great workout. When we go back to Bar Harbor, I will take an advanced class--I can't wait to show her my new tricks!
Thank you, Thorfinn!
