Walking on Water!

Posted: January 4, 2012

We thought you might enjoy a few pictures of Colba and Keir Furman on a recent ice fishing trip.  Any Whip camper ought to be able to name the location!

It was a very cold day and the lake was busy making new ice.  There was an almost constant symphony of booms, pings, cracking sounds and vibrations as the ice expanded.  While the sounds were a little disconcerting, they actually mean that the ice is getting stronger and thicker.  It was about 5 inches thick on this day; plenty for walking on.

The fish proved elusive on this trip, but the boys will keep trying and we will find them eventually.  Perhaps they were all hanging out at Lincoln on this day…

We’ll be enjoying a different kind of fun on the ice this Saturday at our annual camp reunion in NYC.  It’s time to catch up with some of your friends from camp and it sounds like there will be a good turnout of campers and counselors.  We hope to see you all there!

 

Happy New Year!
