The Daily Digital Photo
Chronicling the life of Clayton and Spenser, with memories of Scooter
December 2, 2008
Remember Greg Louganis? The Olympic gold-medalist diver? Well, about twenty years ago I was at a summer swim camp
which was held at a (now defunct) swimming and diving complex in South Florida, where he trained. So we got to
watch him in our off hours. He was amazing. He would stand at the edge of the pool and do flips into the water.
Do you ever watch the divers on the ten meter platform and wonder how scared they are? Well, I think it's safe
to say that while they may be nervous about the dive, the ten meters might as well be ten feet. They are up and
down on that platform for hours every day. They offered us the chance to jump off it, and one of the campers did,
but that camper wasn't me. Oh no no no, not me at all.
It's that time again! Time for the Guest DD! Send me your holiday photos and I will choose five (perhaps more) to be displayed the week after next while we're on vacation. Send them by Tuesday the 9th to firstname.lastname@example.org.
