Yes, one pilots a boat, so when I saw this sight, the name of this post occurred to me.
This was our first kayak outing of the season! The weather is finally warm enough, and my college semester is over, so I have time to do other things...so yesterday evening found me and the girls paddling.
The lake is full of algae clumps which freaked Shel-bell out for some reason. She kept calling them "hobo forests" and said that hobos lived in the clumps and were going to reach up and grab her or knock the boat over. Twelve-year-olds aren't dramatic at all! There were fish jumping all around us, so I told her they were trying to jump out of the water to escape from the hobos. (Who knew hobos were aquatic in the first place? Ya learn something new every day!)
