Cherise Wintz

There is nothing quite like finding a place in nature that feels like it was yours to discover. I drove past a large swampy looking inlet on my way to a big beautiful river. The river -- that was my plan but something told me to turn around. Something told me that hauling my board down the ditch and through the green slime would be worth it. ....Something was right. I was where I was supposed to be. Loving life in the lily pads. Stay adventurous, stay curious. Be prepared for bigger and better to find you!!
