We got up early, drove to Memorial Park and took a slow stroll around the lake while watching this.
Apparently it’s a thing to make the basket hit the water. Several didn’t try. Some tried but pulled up. Maybe 10 did it, and each time there was applause from the spectators. Some dipped once, then lifted and sailed off. Others dragged for quite a ways.
The weather, in every way, could not have been better. We’ll probably make an annual tradition of this.
