We’ve posted the event details on this website now.  Please check it out and reserve your spot as soon as possible.

Whether you want to join us for the weekend or just the day…it’ll be another great experience.

It won’t be winter forever!! Promise!

February 7, 2015  Ocean Breeze, Florida   Spring will be here…it always happens!

 We announced the June dates for the two of our events.  I apologize that the information has been trickling in.  It’s proven to be a struggle to find reliable wi-fi while I am traveling here in Florida.  The campgrounds do not all have wi-fi.  If you are interested in keeping updated, I post regularly on our Facebook page “Real Bliss Glamping Adventures” and “Paddle the Mitten SUP Michigan, LLC”.  Please check us out or sign up for our email updates.


Below are a few details until I post the complete update under our events page:

June 5-7, 2015 is not a designated stand up paddle event, but we will have boards available.  It is the International Glamping Weekend, a 3 day Camp-out at Brighton Recreation, Lower Bishop Lake Campground.  We have 1 vintage Airstream, 1 vintage Friendship camper and 2 Bell Tents that will be available for accomodations if you do not have your own equipment.

This weekend will include many fun and glamorous things to do.  Once in a lifetime thingys!

Our second event in June is our 5th Annual Summer Solstice SUP Weekend!  Yes, a full weekend of stand up paddling.  Anyone who has joined us in the past will tell you that this weekend is well worth the time, energy and money spent.  You can’t buy new friendship and memories like the ones we create!

Please keep an eye out for the details of these.

Almost August Retreat Time!

2014-07-12 21.11.53

Every August for the past 4 years, I’ve taken a group of women to Northern Michigan.  We’ve gone from Traverse City to the Upper Peninsula and loved every minute of it.  But, this year we are doing things a bit different.
‘ve had time to explore the Leelanau Peninsula myself and have hand-picked several places that are absolutely “Must-do or Must-sees”.  I’m excited to share these places, people and adventures with my clients.

Here are some fun pictures that I took last week.  We will be paddling, eating whole food, drinking some local wine and enjoying the local people.

For more information on my retreats this year, contact me at the email address below.

Blissfully yours, Lindy

Michigan’s Secretary of State is All About SUP



June 10, 2014  Traverse City, Michigan  Along with all things Michigan, Paddle the Mitten & SUP Michigan are honored to welcome Michigan’s Sectretary of State, Ruth Johnson as one of our new clients.  We met Ms. Johnson’s Sister several weeks earlier at one of our one-of-a-kind paddle events.  She recommended us to her sister and made things happen.  Along with Ruth being an avid State Park supporter with the selling of the Recreations Passports at all Secretary of State Offices, Ruth is an avid Kayaker.

We never discriminate against other passions of our clients.  Even though Ms. Johnson was an avid kayaker, our Master SUP Instructor, Linda took her out and explained to her how to Paddle Like A Pro.  It was an amazing morning of stand up paddling, enjoying the company of other professional women in our great state of Michigan.

Before the end of August, we look forward to seeing the Secretary and her Sister once again!

This is a great story about how women come together and promote happiness & wellness.  It’s important to me that ALL of my clients are treated honorable and with respect.  Come join us the next few weeks in Suttons Bay or in Southeast Michigan.  I look forward to helping you find your inner Hawaiian.

Mahalo & Shanti,  Lindy
