PhotoHunt: SPORTS

Sports.  That's the topic for this week's Photo Hunt.  I started to post pictures of my three grown children; they've certainly been good sports in putting up with me.  To use pictures of people who have been good sports in putting up with me might have led to an overflow of photos!

While looking through files, I decided instead to use pictures of my brother Shawn engaged in water sports.  He is an avid skiier and a championship skiier.   These were taken at Hickory Knob State Park (SC) in August.



Sometimes he skis on one ski, sometimes backwards (like in the next shot), sometimes barefoot!





Other PHOTO HUNT participants.

Oops!  As I visited a few sites of other Photo Hunt participants, I was reminded of another photo that fit this category, so I'm adding it now.  My dad used to be a boxer known as the "Blond Tiger."  He's in the middle in the photo below.

How awesome is this! Your brother's waterskiing skills are amazing! Def takes coordination too...so I would have to be the one watching and cheering from the sidelines!

And your dad is quite handsome! Why do boys love boxing, ultimate fighting, etc??? My son would love to do that (he has a black belt in martial arts) and he has asked me if I would watch him if he got into that! Um...no, I could hardly stand to watch him wrestle in high school!

Wonderful looking family!

Blessings & aloha!
