why wade in when you can jump?

Because the dock at camp is about 60 feet long, it makes the perfect runway for jumping.  Kids and adults alike can't seem to help themselves and running and jumping are the preferable way to get into the lake (even though the sandy bottom is a mere 5 feet down from the end of the dock).

I'm not sure how it started but Emilie and I have an annual tradition of  running in tandem and both jumping for one Frisbee.
