more of the same
Leaps off the sandhill into the waterhole ...
hiding from the camera ...
getting my new bathers wet. It's all go around here.
Edited to say: I know, I know, it looks terrifying. The pictures are misleading somehow but I can assure you that the sand hill right next to the river was very steep and high, and about six inches offshore the water depth dropped sharply so that you couldn't even touch the bottom. Earlier we had seen teenagers doing backflips and all sorts of death defying feats into the water. I forbade mine to do somersaults and flips (and thus am now officially the meanest mum in the world) but allowed them to bomb, jump and dive.
