Paddle Exercises

Written by Rodney Smith.

I’m not one of those people who paddle for the fun of it. Please don’t get me wrong, I don’t hate to paddle, but I usually only do it to obtain a higher objective. You can imagine my joy when I decided to dedicate three weeks to paddling the entire length of the Indian River Lagoon coast. I knew I could do it, but I was looking forward more to the overall experience: the camping, fishing (and other hunt and gather chores, like catching stone crabs or digging clams), exploring, wildlife watching, etc., that go along with a 160 mile paddle and camp along North America’s greatest and most diverse estuary.
