Our son has told me more than a few times that he'd really like to make some candle boats like THESE
to float out on the water
. We saw it in a book about festivals around the world I think. I remember doing this at overnight camp when I was a kid on to a lake.
But now as a boat
dweller, this seems like a really BAD idea. An accident
waiting to happen. Clearly we could not do it anywhere near our marina. But I am even hesitant to tell me we can launch off the beach on to the Chesapeake. Am I being paranoid about this being (1) an accident
waiting to happen (what if it bumps dry grass
or a boat) and (2) not so great for the earth (floating out something that will end up as pollution.
can anyone offer any ideas/ experience/ points of view on this?
