The girls watching some of the local entertainment. Kendal heard that his next performance would be "in 15 minutes" and she begged us to watch it.
Here, they are all testing out the bed of nails
Jeff, another guy and the two girls stood on a board....on the guy....laying on the bed of nails. The other two guys stood on the ends for support. While I know this is all part of the whole magical, illusion act, I still couldn't help thinking as I was watching this that it would be just totally awful if the horrific did happen and he punctured himself through all those nails while our innocent girls were looking on. Not to mention, that the poor guy would most surely die.
Thankfully, the horrific didn't happen and all ended well and he peeled himself off of the nails. He did have some pretty icky gouge marks all over his back though. EEEWW!
Here he is demonstrating how he was going to swallow the sword. Yuh-huh!!
Ummmm, yeah, I was totally icked out and fascinated by this at the same time. I actually gagged watching this. I really wonder sometimes what makes some people tick. I mean really now, what possesses a person to try something like this. He did inform us that he is only 1 of 47 sword swallowers left in the world. Hmmm really, I wonder why that is....
It is just gorgeous there, all the views of the water and the weather. We realized while there how much we actually miss living there.
