If you made a boat out of cardboard and duct tape, how long do you think it'd float?  Longer than you may guess.  Tadpole & I spent the weekend at Kayuta Lake Campground for the Cardboard Boat Races.  We played games, handed out Subway gift cards and took part in a parade around the campground, with our cardboard boats on display. Then it was down to the beach for the races.  But how long did the 'Pond-Tune' float?

The object was to race your boat around the buoy and back.  There were a few who sank, but most surprisingly made it the whole way.  The best was saved for last when my boat hit the water. It took all of FIVE POINT FIVE SECONDS for me to flip it over. It may have stayed a float for the entire race if I could have kept it upright!  Watch the video

Thanks to Joey, or should we call him 'Little Mike,' who told us what time it was.

See pictures from the day at Kayuta Lake Campground.  Thanks to Karen & Mike for making us feel welcome and taking such good care of us every time we're there.
