a puzzle, and perplexity for you

And, the perplexity... is it only teachers, used to scanning a school yard or classroom for danger who look at these scenes and shudder?

I strolled into town to see what was going on, to take photos of our Bala Habitat Muskoka build.
On the way I spotted many folks at the falls.

I see people fishing.

And a family kayaking...
others fishing from boats,

or scooting around the bottom of the north falls.

In a previous post, I watched a dad take two young children and a puppy to paddle in the falls. Grandparents watched from above. You wonder at people visiting. It is no wonder that people drown here.

Well, that's a great puzzle and I just don't know what could have caused those bubbles in the water. Maybe from a fish jumping or a duck diving for a fish?

I'm sure that teachers AND parents are true "scanners". And grandparents...of which I am one :-)

I cannot concentrate on the danger when I am simply so jealous that you can look at that beautiful body of water all of the time!! What wonderful place you call home!

People and water scare me. Most don't use good judgement.

It's so beautiful there!

It's amazing to me that people think they are the smartest animals. :)

I think it's surprising how many people leave common sense at home when they go on vacation.
