Whee!  What if you could sled all year long?  You can!  Swoosh down sand dunes.

There is no snow to make you cold.  You may get sand in your teeth if you tumble.

Pray: Thank God for making sand dunes. People have great fun sliding down them.

No more waiting until winter to go sledding. Sand dunes in Swakopmund, Namibia, are open all year. More cruise liners dock at nearby Walvis Bay now. Tourists want to do more than shop. They head for the dunes. They stand up or lie down to sand board down the slopes. One of the fastest dunes is called Dizzy. Some people zoom down at 50 miles per hour. Wear closed shoes if you lie down. Your feet are the brakes!

“Judah and Israel were as many as the sand by the sea.” (1 Kings 4:20)
