Last week in Picture of the Week, I shared an image of our friend Nico riding a wheelie through Washington, D.C. Nico has been staying with us for the past few weeks and we’ve had many adventures. This week’s is another such adventure. Nico had expressed an interest in going swimming somewhere that we could jump off a cliff, and after discussing with several friends, it was determined that Fort Dickerson in South Knox was the place to go.
One of the things that has been fun about having Nico here is his excitement for new things. He said when he got here that he had an open mind was wanting to experience all that he could while he is here. To that end, there have been a few occasions where he has joked, “I would never do this in Poland… but since I’m on vacation, why not!?”; this is an example of one of those times. He let a few of us go first, just to make sure it was safe (I mean, as safe as jumping off a cliff can be), and then off he went!
You know me, I had to document the whole thing. After messing around with the images though, it struck me that a single frame of a person floating in air didn’t really properly catch the action. For this week’s picture I decided to do something a little different and stack several images together to show the progression of the fall. Good times!!
Last week in Picture of the Week, I mentioned that our friend Nico from Poland was coming in to visit us for several weeks. Well, he has been here for a week and there have been many adventures and entertaining moments along the way (my friend Ben says he will have a very skewed view of American life once we’re done LOL). He has been zip-lining, ridden his first roller coaster (at Dollywood, no less), visited an elementary school for a day, and this weekend we went to Washington, D.C. via Megabus.
Now, Nico is a very talented individual. You’ll be hanging out with him and then realize he has some skill you never knew he had… such as playing the guitar… or… riding a wheelie for seemingly as long as he wants to! After walking around for most of the day visiting museums, our feet were killing us, but there was still so much of D.C. to see! Enter Capital Bikeshare (more on this later). The three of us rented bikes and took off through the Mall so we could see the Lincoln Memorial, the Jefferson Memorial, and all the sights along the way. That’s when it happened. Nico pops a wheelie and takes off riding, carrying on a conversation as though nothing unusual was happening! Of course… we had to document.
Even more stuff!
