The LBHS Seniors started their graduation week off with a 4 p.m. Luau at Heisler Park and a 5 p.m. paddle out at Picnic Beach on Monday, June 11. After taking a group picture, they headed down the ramp – most of them carrying a soft top or short board, plus a few paddle boards and a boogie board or two. The water temp was 64 degrees with an occasional 2- to 3-foot wave, so it took a while for everyone to make it out beyond the surf line.

Those who knew their limitations stayed at the shoreline or watched from the cliff as the boards formed a circle. You’ll have to ask someone who was out there what was said.

Then they headed back in, and the extra lifeguards on duty went to work, catching loose boards and helping those that were not the strongest of ocean swimmers…

The word mayhem always comes to mind from watching many paddle out ceremonies!

The smiles on everyone’s faces said they really didn’t mind
