Boats in a row

Lake Burley Griffin, Canberra ACT

The paddle boats were arranged meticulously, each color inviting the patrons to choose one for a spin on the lake.

Sheldon chose the yellow one as it was his favorite color, and took it on the water after getting a short introductory lesson from the guy who was leasing them out.

But unfortunately, he didn’t grasp the basics very well and a short distance from the shore the boat capsized, and he ended up in the water, the life vest and the lifeguard saved him before he swallowed too much of the lake Burley Griffin; this was the end of Sheldon’s water adventures!
