Dr. Wayne Johnson Paddled The Ocean

This evening I had the honor to paddle with Wayne Johnson,MD. from the
Hilton Head Health & Wellness Center

I met at his house and we paddled from the Folly/ Singleton Beach area. I even had to make an appointment to schedule this paddle session. Thanks to Karen 143.
(Wayne is a very busy Doctor with a great practice here on the island )...
The low tide made for easier water entry but the 10 knot onshore wind and 2 ft swell made for tough learning and paddling conditions for a first time ocean paddle. 'Dr. J' did really well and was up and paddling in 5 minutes. After a short time he found his balance and was able to enjoy the surroundings in the aquatic environment and witnessed an awesome sunset.. Wayne was a great patient and experienced paddle therapy first hand. He's hooked.. Next paddle with Wayne will be in Broad Creek to improve his technique and really enjoy the view from above the waterline.. Thanks Wayne for your time... Props to Mikey for a great dinner afterwards..
Great people and I'm honored to be friends with them.
Wayne, Your smile is my reward...
