It was hhoott and humid today; I’ve never sweated so much in life for doing nothing.
We had a good time, nonetheless. Amelia had fun and was wise enough to stay in the shade with me while Greg did all the photo taking.
Anyway, pictures are worth a thousand words, so here we go!
It wasn’t even noon and the humidity was thick.
Some of the competition – a little creative.
eh, a little better
my favorite boat – a paper hat!
And here’s our team, The Green Beards:
I didn’t get a really good picture of the boat. Greg has been taking many pictures of the boat all week (during the assembly) and today. Eventually, he’ll upload his pictures onto Flickr (which reminds me, I need to renew his pro membership).
I really don’t have much to write about the events: teams created a cardboard boat and had to be able to make their way to the finish line – 200 meters away – without sinking or falling out of the boat. Surprisingly, the few races we watched (because as soon as The Green Beards “sailed” we left), there were only two sinking’s; which I bet felt really good.
Anyway, here are a few more pictures of the day:
and, as to be expected, all the pictures can be found over here.
