Have you ever been tubing? When it is summer time, and the living is easy, and the fish are jumping, and the cotton is high, somewhere there is a quiet river for your tubing pleasure. Jump in a tube, guide it carefully into the river, and float on the cool, soothing waters, move lazily with the calming currents, as though you had not a worry in the world. It is the perfect way to cool off on a sunny summer day.
If you don't have a lazy river near you (or if it's still too darn cold) here are a few photography links to explore indoors.
Odd and quirky sums up these images from Poland.
