“I prefer to be alive, so I’m cautious about taking risks.”
Sunday, when going for a late afternoon walk along Little Lake Butte des Morts, I came across several people ice fishing on what was left of winter’s frozen water.
Have I told you that I’m not a fan of being out on the ice, either on foot or in a car? I think I became a bit phobic in my 20’s when in the back seat of a two-door vehicle, out on Lake Winnebago, hearing the ice crack and wondering how the heck I would get out of the car if anything happened.
Have not been in a car, on the ice, ever since.
I will walk out onto an ice rink, but not an icy pond.
So, when I saw the above-noted people on ice that was turning gray and puddling due to the recent warmer weather, I wondered if they were a bit crazy or I was a bit paranoid.
Yes, this is a pretty photo of the sun going down, but look at the puddles and the open water that’s not too far away.
I suppose these people are enjoying the last vestiges of a sport they love before the ice goes away, but are they taking a risk?
I don’t know, but you would not get me out there.
I prefer sticking to the walking trail and taking in the gorgeous sunset.
Ahhhh…that’s much better.
I’m sure the ice fishing people made it home safe, but I prefer firm ground and ensuring that I stay alive…always and forever.
