Day 395 – Flight

During a break from work today, we went down to the park. It was a beautiful day and I thought the kids might be down there strutting their stuff.

I watched in awe as they skateboarded and road their bikes around the curves. They took a lot of chances, even if they weren’t in complete control. They tried different things and they constantly pushed themselves. I watched a few wipe out, but they got right back on their feet and went again.

This guy actually pulled off a complete back flip with his bike.

I think there is probably a lesson to be learned from these guys.

  • Leslie R. Lee - LOL, BZ Training, yep! They should be wearing helmets and protection. The pro's do so what's the big deal. Yeah, I'm a dad alright. Great capture and shot though.ReplyCancel

  • Sharkbayte - Wonderful action capture! They should have some type of protection, even though growing up we never had any…which could explain a few things…ReplyCancel

  • greygirl25 - The whole time I watched them I was really glad that I had daughters who preferred to keep their feet closer to the ground.ReplyCancel

  • MaggieGem - Great action shot… oh to be in warm sun and shirt sleeves!

    The lesson – Youth is wasted on the young? 😉
