PH: Ripples and More Ripples!

The Photo Hunt theme this week is RIPPLES.

Last weekend, about 25 family members gathered at Hickory Knob State Park (McCormick, SC) to celebrate Mom's 84th birthday. These two skiers - son-in-law Adam and brother Shawn - created lots of ripples in the water.

Shawn was skiing but he's hidden by the water in this photo.






These two photos show Adam creating ripples. Adam is married to Mandy, my youngest daughter.







Brother Shawn is in the next two.



Okay, maybe I stretched it a bit. These may be bigger than mere ripples, but they were ripples by the time they reached the shore -- maybe??? How else was I going to show off my brother and my son-in-law?

More about this "camping" trip can be found here.
Other Photo Hunt ripples are here.

That is crazy awesome! definitely takes talent, skill, and coordination!

I have a friend whose family did waterskiing performances in Cypress Gardens... She did growing up, & in the 50's and 60's her dad (Joker Osborn) and uncle (Mike Osborn) were champion skiiers, um, skiers ( I dont even know how that is spelled, much less even begin to attempt to waterski!)

I love to watch though :o)
