Portrait of Courtney

Courtney worked at Paddle Sports Center in Santa Barbara, California, USA. She was working there “for the whole of two weeks” when we met.

Courtney was originally from Georgetown, Massachusetts and had graduated from The University of New Hampshire (UNH) in Durham, New Hampshire, having studied Recreation Management. She hoped that her career would be “mostly working with people by and on the water.”

Courtney was a beginning Surfer but was “more into kayaking and paddle-boarding” at the time we met.

About zongrik

For those of you who do not know the handle "zongrik," that would be Bat-Ami Gordin. Most people call me "Tammy." Bat-Ami means "daughter of my nation" in Hebrew. It's a heavy name to carry around. I answer to either name. I also answer to "mama." Some Basic Things about me: Animal lover, mom, poet/writer, dramatic soprano, photographer, teacher/tutor, CERT/Technician and, oh yeah, aerospace engineer. I consider myself "The Astro-Poet." To learn more about the origins of the word "zongrik" see whats-a-zongrik?

  1. Nice picture &write about Courtney at first I thought she was a lifeguard for some reason having read past Paddle Sports Center. A true California girl.

  2. Great capture – you have the ability to pick out someone, and then when we hear the story of what they do and want out of life it rings to true! That’s a gift!
    Thanks for swinging by!
