Olympic Rowing Memories

While watching Olympic rowing this afternoon my mind wandered to some memories of long ago.

rowing olympics, sculling, crew, boatsThe first was a picture I took during a trip to Taipei about 10 years ago. This was of a bug walking across water in a park we visited. While watching the sculling races, this is what I thought about.

Now back to the Olympics.
