♬This is the end, my friends♬
Yesterday was beach takedown day. I am officially done guarding for the summer :( At least the water was warm when I went in to bring in the buoy. I am going to miss that beach and the loons that come out to visit. Some days the water was nice and clear, sometimes it was mirky. Occasionally the minks would come out and tease me with the fact I didn’t have my camera with me. I’m going to miss swimming under water about 15 feet to pick up two cement blocks and start walking them thru thick, deep mud to put the buoy back to where it should be. I got to work with some of the best lifeguards Northern Wisconsin.
Yea, there were some troublesome kids that would drive me nuts, but there were others who were well behaved and funny sometimes. It was fun to watch young families come to the beach for their first times. Canadians would come down and make fun of the people and guards who think the water is too cold while Floridians would think we are all nuts.
Until next year, from the guy with his eye on the sky, Travis...the formally lifeguarding camping lifeguard.
