I Want One of These!

Doesn’t this look like fun and great exercise?!  Can’t you see a bunch of these bopping around Gloucester Harbor?  I just wonder how easy it would be to get back onto if you fall off out in the water.

About E.J.

Artist, researcher, writer, spiritual traveler of this fascinating orb we inhabit, lover of life and all it has to offer. Hi everyone out there in GMG land. My name is Ellen “E.J.” Lefavour (a/k/a “Ejay Khan” – the pseudonym I used during my years as a political activist artist). I moved to Cape Ann in September of 2010, and was thrilled to be invited by Joey to become a daily contributor to Good Morning Gloucester in December of that year. I am a painter, photographer and writer who has lived and worked as an artist for 20 years, since leaving the corporate world in 1990 to pursue my passion. My contributions to GMG will consist of images (either my paintings, photographs, montages or the occasional video) and a little history about the image, called “Did you Know?” I hope to come up with tidbits of information that people don’t already know, or had forgotten they knew. As I am new here, everything is new and fascinating to me, especially the amazing history, so bear with me if I post something that is common knowledge – I’ll eventually come up with something that’s new to you. As an artist, I will also write about the incredible art scene on Cape Ann. Please take a minute to comment on my posts, like them or not, especially if you have corrections or something to add, as that is how I, and all of us, learn. Have a Good Morning Gloucester, and a blessed day.

  1. You may have hit upon the problem that needs fixing before they become popular. How do you get back on in the middle of the water? And if you had three inch chop or maybe a boat wake, do you fall over?

    They make it look like balancing and staying up is easy. I kind of doubt it. On a flat lake where you never venture too far from the dock, might be fun.

    There is a land version which I have tried (Trikke). It appears both require lots of body movement and would be great exercise and fun to boot. Go for it!

      I just looked at the trikke. Similar but not the same motion, and looks like you would need a smooth surface to ride on, which might be the same for the waterbird.

    You never know why lies in the room if you don’t open the door and give it try? Mult-purpose and shake things up? :-)
