Bouncing Boat

Last summer I came across some boys launching some rubber dinghys.  The wind picked up one of the boats and sent it hopping and skipping down the river.  This was the only shot I got of it the way it was supposed to be rather than upside down or on its side.  I though I had showed a post of a boy swimming after it but could not find it. Perhaps next Friday

love the reflection on the water.
The Explorer has a mind of it's own. Nice to hear the context of the shot

a funny boat - I love the name 'Explorer' which sounds like it wanted crossing the big pond to America!
The boat takes after it's name! Nice shot Mary, before reading your text, I assumed the passengers were slunk down in the dingy! smile
All alone... till the boys come to get it.

Well it is Friday ...
It's lovely Mary. The colours look so bright. A lone boat always makes you think.
Pausing for breath before it shoots off again
I guess if it was on a river they stood a good chance of retrieving it Mary.
Obviously a boat with a will of its own!

Oh dear! I hope that he got it back alright. "Explorer" seems appropriate.

Lots of tragic accidents with the unsupervised use of these on beaches.
The boat has an invisible pilot... smile
You did, Mary. 13th July 2012. This is a good shape and clour against the blue.
