We went for early Sunday dinner at the terrace at the Jericho Sailing Club and then of course for a walk on the pier. On the pier was free entertainment; Kris Holm was having a performance filmed. He claims to be the world’s best known Mountain Unicyclist, a category that’s new to me. I got a few pictures.

His technique was pretty impressive; cycling along the narrow top of the pier railings and working his way around 90° turns; leaping the unicycle from one railing to another, and hurtling to ground from way up in the air.

This is the new lens at work, of course; the auto-focus worked like a champ when Mr. Holm was hurtling down a railing directly toward me.

When we were leaving the pier I thought “Oh, of course” and hurried back and called out to where he was perched up on the pier, saying “Hey, got a web site? I have a blog, mind if I run a picture and link?”

Whow, impressing unicyclist. I should try this too on the eaves gutter in front of my window. ;)
