A couple weeks ago Andrew and I went to a family reunion. It was held in a park. At one point Andrew and I walked down to the river (pictured above) while taking a break from playing badminton.
We started skipping stones. I used to skip stones as a kid at a lake in PA where my grandparents lived. I was pretty good at it. My skills over the years have diminished.
I could still skip some stones but could only get a couple of bounces. Even with perfect skipping stones that were flat on at least one edge. My technique needs work. I need practice.
I seem to remember skipping stones by throwing them in a motion similar to a frisbee. Andrew skips stones by throwing them more like a side arm pitcher would. That’s how I was throwing stones a couple weeks ago. I wonder if that was my problem. I should have tried the other method to see if I was any better at it.
