Eek! I was thinking of a lake with no surprises. Lily pads at the most. Oh, my paws and whiskers. Though, by the way, I can swim. I'm just a klutz with sports equipment.

By the way, did anyone see the Women's Eights rowing? One of the most elegant of water races. I love those long, slim boats with the synchronized pairs of oars flicking like dragonfly wings. The boats seem as if they glide just over the water rather than through it. I've never seen crew rowing in real life. Does anyone here have any expertise in it?
