Not The Way To The North Pole


Santa made a wrong turn somewhere around Minneapolis while trying to find his way home.

Actually, this is one of the members of the Missouri Disabled Water Ski Association. They do their thing in the Mississippi River under the Arch on New Year's Day. The members wear whatever one does for plunging into cold water. (And the water was cold yesterday. At least there was no ice floating in the river.) Personally I think they're nuts, although for a good cause.

A few more years and you can actually water skiing to the North Pole.

Holy cow...what a shot. I agree about the "nuts" part. But, it makes for great photos and causes .

Yes, a little bit of craziness is involved but at least it goes for a good cause. Nice shot Bob!

That does look just a little too cold for my liking. But you got a nice snap of santa.
