Summer Boating Lesson

There is a rumor going around 
that Jubilee might be able to take the boat out into a real BODY OF WATER,
if only the boat floats properly and she can balance her weight to keep it afloat.
She was happily willing to take some lessons!

Hold still in the middle of the boat!
No, it is leaning to one side!

Sit up straight!

Oops! That is NOT SITTING UP!
Watch the back end of your boat!

After some twisting around,
 Jubilee starts to daydream about the scene in
Anne of Green Gables
where Anne floats down the river in a small boat,
reciting the "Lady of Shallot"
Too bad Jubilee does not know that poem.

Well, try facing the back.
Is that better?

Still, steady, and no diving out the boat.
How did she do?

  1. Oh my gosh, Jubliee! You are so much braver than I am. I'm afraid of water. Like REALLY afraid of water! But you took to it like a native boatswoman! Good luck with your grand water adventures out on a real body of water! - Miri
