watery wednesday: diving from a pier

This boy, aged 8 jumped more than 20 times. I told his dad that he was a brave boy. His dad replied he was stupid. He wanted to jump from the pole, his dad stopped him.

Here the dad jumped from the pole.

Oh, to be that young and have that much energy!

Ginny Hartzler said...

Well, I guess he is just like his dad!

I was always too much of a coward for that sort of thing... (Hold my breath even watching...)

Hehehe! Some people have a much stronger need for the rush of adrenalin than I need. :)

I always think it is hypocritical to say "do as I say and not as I do". Dad jumps from the pole, but tells his son not to!
But to be fearless enough to do either...
Or maybe that should comfortable enough with the water...

Like father, like son ;)
And they seem to love the wonderful water.

aloha ann,

thanks for visiting...yes it does snow in hawaii on the highest elevations which is around 13,000 ft.

It might be a bit higher than I would like, but that water is very inviting.

I probably would have dived from the pole, so I guess I'm stupid too!


The water pipes are freezing,
I cannot get a drink;
The water pipes are freezing
Underneath the sink.

I wish some kindly plumber
Would come with flame and wrench,
So I could get some water
My raging thirst to quench!
