How To and How Not To waterski
There are many videos on How Not To!
Failblog.org features some that are funny, others that are painful.
Muskoka tradition is boating and waterskis. I do enjoy watching people go by who know what they are doing. I admire those who persevere, too.
It is beautiful to see some of the skills involved. Across our lake people have placed markers for this purpose. Of course, the tubers have to go up and down the buoy lanes, too, but there is no skill in tubing, except for staying away from docked boats. (See the previous post!)
We enjoyed the boys cheering this young man on. He tried so hard, and they cheered so loudly when he made it up! Give yourself a pat-on-the-back!
The rub is that the guy across the way was doing a fine job!
Then there is fishing...
It is no wonder that we have had many accidents. People do foolish things!
I wonder if mandatory life jackets will do anything? This video demonstrates the reluctance of those to wear a Personal Flotation Device. With nearly a dozen drownings this past month, you'd think people would be more careful!
