ZEN PADDLE 2014

Zen Paddle.

You've heard of Zen. 

But we need to beg for the answer to the nerdy question:

 "What the Hec is Zen? 

It could have many definitions from paddler to paddler.

Maybe its the gulping ,gurgling  sound of the water swirling around your paddle? Or maybe its the soothing Green Tea color if the reservoir? 

The popular idea of Zen is that of Kung Fu monks walking around in their socks. Think David Carradine,minus the flute and before his acting resurrection in Kill Bill.  

The Zen paddle will come out of Fountainhead and go to a sandy shore just shy of Lake Ridge Park.

Bring Zen-Scooby Do like snacks to help you regain your strength back.

Come and join us and "Get Your Zen On!" HUmmmmm 

"The mind is what the brain does!"

"Hatred is never ended by hatred but by love."

"The trouble is that you think you have time."

"We are human beings not human doings"

 Dinner at 5 Guys?

    What a paddle! It was a little bit Zen and a little bit of a work out paddle! From Fountainhead all the way to Hampton Rd Bridge and back!
    Thank you for attending.

      Wish I was still in VA. That would have been perfect for a kayak trip. Just got back to FL yesterday. I have to figure out how to book a flight in advance to match the dates.

      actually David Carradean used the flute most dramatically in Kill Bill Part 2 when he was telling a story over a camp fire. Check it out!https://www.youtube.co...­
