fun on the ice

The Sea Breeze FD had an exercise on the ice at Irondequoit Bay yesterday as I happened by.  They have a hovercraft they were trying out on the ice and water.  It’s the first time I’ve seen one of this size and it seemed to maneuver very well on both ice and water.  And pretty fast, too, though the gulls were faster.

You can see more fun on the ice here.

    I decided to avoid the Twist of fate post, not sure about the pic therein…so here I am checking out the Fun on Ice! It must be extraordinary to be able to walk on water, in any shape or form, not something I experience down here, in the heat….so, Ken, did they give you a ride?

      Well, in the interest of full disclosure, the hovercraft belongs to the town of Irondequoit, a neighbor of Webster. I used to live there, a long, long time ago.

      It’s really cool, Jimi. Ihave a friend who lives on a lake and in the center of the lake is a small island with one house. The owner has a garage on the lake shore and a hovercraft to get back and forth to the island. It seems like a lot of work but they don’t get a lot of drop-ins, either.
