"Anatomy Of A Dunking", or "Graceful" Performs "Swan Lake"!

Yesterday "Pontiac" and I had to fly Chris Pancoe, Simon Potter, and 4 others to Vickers Lake on the Pigeon River, as they will be canoeing the "canyons" of the Pigeon River until Saturday. It was very warm when we left, but the air was smooth. I made Vickers first, and tied on the "lee" side of an island. Then Pontiac landed, and as I finished unloading my guys and canoes, I noticed he shut down off a point on the island I was on. Yup, just like "The Skipper", he had "run aground". Time to untie his canoe, unload his passengers, and lighten the aircraft to get off the "rock ledge" he was on.

 

My canoes and "crew" unloaded..........

 

"Hey Pontiac, what are you doing out there?".........

 

Untieing his canoe, which his passengers will paddle to shore...........

 

"Mission accomplished"......."Shit, I am still hung-up"............

 

Get out the paddle...........

 


 


 

Pontiac looked like he would soon be "free", so I turned back toward my Otter, then I heard the "splash"............

 

Yes, I did hear a splash, lucky my camera was ready. Pontiac ("Graceful") can swim, so there was no chance he would drown.............

 

The "laughter" started from the island...........

 


 


 

"Graceful" made it back on the float, and then started pointing at something. Funny thing, he was using his middle finger...............

 


 

I turned back toward UKN, and I am sure a smile was "greased across her cowl"..........

 

......and the "last word of my Post" goes to bush veteran UKN.........

"Rookie humour, gotta' love it"............

"Adios"!
