Our Island Story Part 8~Having Fun IN and ON the Water

Yes, I said ON. That would be my rebel husband being a really good role model to his kids!! This is what happens when spring comes and daddy finds chunks of ice to go "ice surfing." (WARNING~Do Not Try This Alone!) When he asked what I would do if he fell in all I could say was, "I will laugh and laugh until the cows come home!" What's interesting about ice chucks breaking away is they can be very dangerous. Especially where there are 20x more as you see in this photo. This time of year, when there are many broken off pieces we only had our john boat for transportation and dodging all these pieces while crossing the river could sometimes prove to be a challenge!! Hitting on could tip the boat easily!

Love it! Your husband must be a lot of fun! Great pictures! So glad you captured this time in your life!! I'm even more thinking you should turn this into an article or short book for publication! :) The truth is alwasy stranger than fiction! (And more fascinating!)
