The lifeguard paddles Julie across the estuary

Here is a photo of the kindly lifeguard paddling the kayak to bring my wife across the Langosta estuary.

I mentioned during the last few days that my wife getting picked up by this lifeguard in a kayak is an example of what my son will describe as "playing the blonde card." Another example occurred occurred a month or so ago.

Julie was pulled over by a policeman for driving a little too fast in Scottsdale, Arizona. She told the officer that she did not notice her speed because she was distracted because she was admiring the pretty blue sky. Although in Arizona we have blue skies 89% of the daylight hours, the officer let her go without giving her a ticket.

Julie contends that being a blonde had nothing to do with the policeman letting her go and that she has been pulled over by police more often because of her blondness, but my son and I are not buying that contention for a minute.

Tomorrow I will show Julie thanking the lifeguard for his efforts in rescuing her.

On our Viva la Voyage travel photo site we are showing photos from Spain this week.

Oh, yeah, she's got a grin on her face like the cat who swallowed the canary. Can't wait to see how she said, 'thank you.'

this was quite the rescue and i was so happy for this kayaker lifeguard so i did not ruin my camera gear trying to cross back.

not a very fair story about the police stop as there was more to it than that and i was very grateful not to get a ticket and i did and do slow down as a reminder particularly in that same area.

Love the stories, love the photos...

One time in Houston a number of years ago, Lois noticed a police car behind her with lights flashing...she hadn't done anything wrong so she just kept going. The cop continued to ride her tail.

Finally, as if disgusted, he turned off and went the other direction!
