Wacky Canoe Races


"Get set . . . go!"


"Around the raft of the Lake Sharks and return to the dock." 


"Back to the raft again."


"Store your paddles and get back using only your arms."


"When I blow the horn, change places."



"When I blow the horn this time, jump out and get back in."


"This time, get up on the gunwales and rock it in!"


"Now, CAPSIZE IT!!!"


"Great job, everyone.  Paddle them in."

This is my 1500th post.  The wacky canoe races are a perfect subject for it.

Terrific action shots, Jack!

If you've got more of them, they'd be ideal for the Movement theme later in the year.

Yes, perfect for your #1500th post. Looks like great fun on a warm summer afternoon.

Great photos of the race; not quite the same as the crews in The Boys in the Boat!

What great action shots, Jack. Reminds me of my Eva's camp experience in NC this summer!

This group of people is having way too much fun. In New Hampshire, no less! I'm assuming you didn't canoe 'cause you were taking pictures, right?

I wouldn't have minded being in the first canoe on the right in the first picture. I don't know why.

Wow, good milestone - even better to notice it! (I passed mine and didn't even notice.) And wonderful action shots - they look to be having great fun. I trust you were onshore?

Now that's quite a way to work off kid energy...or that big dessert last night.
Congrats on #1500! (I'm celebrating 3 years today - 1,072 posts.) But who's counting??
