How to use paddle in a sentence?

  1. Freedman Fowler:

    Acristavus does not have a crest. The top of its skull is flat. Brachylophosaurus has a large, flat, paddle-shaped crest that completely covers the back of the top of its skull, it is a perfect example of evolution within a single lineage of dinosaurs over millions of years.

  2. Richard Theoharis:

    He’s very capable on the paddle board so it seems fishy to me, he was under pressure. He owed $600,000 and he didn’t have it. He was afraid the judge would throw him in jail. If he’s scared, we hope he will contact us. Make a phone call. Just let somebody know you’re safe so we can rest at night.

  3. Michael Goforth:

    It can be a really passive, intuitive thing. That's kind of what your goal is, is to let the water do all the work, and you use your paddle to assist when it's not perfect.

  4. Fedor Baart:

    We didn't know exactly when the inmates launched their boats, or their precise starting point, and so we decided to release 50 'boats' every 30 minutes between 20:00 and 04:00 (11 p.m. and 4 a.m.) from a range of possible escape spots at Alcatraz to see where they would end up, we added a paddling effect to the 'boats,' as we assumed the prisoners would paddle as they got closer to land.

  5. Cruise Passenger Lynch:

    I'm especially excited about the new Loire cruises because it's a river which has yet to be explored, paddle ships will allow this to be done for the first time in 2015.
