NEVER TOO LATE TO LEARN


I am super adept at slamming into waves
saving Mr. Orangie 
from a fate worse than death,
body surfing into shore
and
plunking my orange ball
onto the ground in front of the guys!


However, when I was faced with the daunting task of retrieval
the other day at Graham's Grove ~~~


 well, kerplunk 
massive splash
belly flop (some would say) ~~


 I accepted the challenge 
and 
scored a 10 out of 10 in
DOODLE'S~VILLE!!


Did I tell you that I LOVE to DIVE
off the dock now 
any dock
any time
just bring it on!!

Below is one of my first attempts

      If one is going to use a dock then expected a red belly!!

  3. Way to Go, Girl! We only like to slowly wade into water...and then not too deep!

    1. Ron has no respect for a LADYDOODLE'S form whilst entering the lake of serenity ~~ is that too much?

      He laughs as he clicks away!

    1. Hope to return soon but alas the autumn chills are returning and my lady parts can't handle the coolness of the water I've noticed.

      I will be very careful indeed!

  9. Ouch, Sophie - that second photo looks like you hit at an awkward angle. I loved your video - you're a star! I noticed you looked back for a little confidence from the guys before your dive. It's always nice to have someone in the wings wishing you well, Sophie. Great job!

  12. Way to go, Sophie!!! You are getting really good at diving from a dock! I've had a few bellyflops myself! Why is it that such a few photos and a short video can fill my heart with joy? You're something else Miss Doodle!

    1. HI there you 2!!!!

      So glad to see your smiling faces coming by to help me with my diving lessons.

      I scrapped my belly a few times but quickly got the hang of it and now I bug the guys to take me to the dock all the time.

      Cheers and all the best!

  14. I just heard someone was looking for me on MacDonald Hill this morning at 10 a.m.

    Sorry I missed you because I was on Lawrencetown Beach walking Ron ~ LOL!

    Cheers to whoever it was (you had a friend from Ontario with you)!!
