Man Flying Down the Beach
Mama and I went to see the beach at Lincoln City, Oregon, on Sept. 11. I had taken a mental health day off from work so we could enjoy a field trip of sorts, to play the penny machines at Spirit Mountain and to go see the beach, too.
Little did we know that we'd see this man with his parachute. I guess that's what you call it--it certainly looked like a parachute. In this photo, he's in a sitting position, heels digging into the sand as the wind swiftly pulls him along the beach. I felt some anxiety for his safety, but he certainly seemed to glory in the speed and power of the wind.
