Yesterday, my roomie and I had a girlfriend come to stay with us from North Carolina and we decided to be tourists in our own home. Hugh Birch State Park was our first port of call and we booked a paddleboarding day through the park. It was actually easier than we anticipated! I highly recommend giving it a go, and it was a little workout too. I could see that it might be harder with waves if you were to do it in the ocean, but in a river like this, it was super easy to get the hang of. Next time, we will go somewhere a bit nicer. It was fine, but the water was definitely not something you would want to swim in, that's for sure. And you mainly just go by people back gardens, nothing too special to see.
After that, we went to the beach to cool off, just by crossing the road, dunking ourselves into the waves and heading back home to get changed for the Panthers game.
And what a game it was! I'm not a huge sports fan like my roomie but we saw it super close to the rink and it was so much fun! Such a great game and now my voice hurts today as a result of cheering so loudly, but it was totally worth it!
What do you do when you take your out of town friends around South Florida?
