Canoeing – Wonder Lake Style


My wife and I took a cruise on Wonder Lake on Independence Day and, naturally, I took the camera.

We saw lots of activity in and on the lake, some of which I shall share with you in future posts, but watching the canoeing was the most fun.

It was an inflatable canoe ridden by five young folks.

First, I got a pretty straightforward shot.

Trying to take another one, the girl on the back fell off. You can see her body leaning left, but I had framed the picture on the moving pontoon boat with little room to spare.

As a result, you can’t see the falling girl’s head.

They all got back on the canoe and were off again.

By then, they had noticed that I was taking pictures and seemed happy enough to be
“immortalized.”

Of course, since we weren’t within shouting distance—just waving distance—they didn’t know that they would end up on McHenry County Blog.

I took a couple of more shots, as you can see, before they pretty much disappeared out of sight on this largest of McHenry County’s lakes.

When we caught up again, I saw disaster have befallen the canoeists.

They had all fallen into Wonder Lake this time.

Wipe out!
