Perhaps you’ve paused to wonder, “why does Runoia reference Out on the Blue Waves so frequently”.
Well, it’s a favorite Runoia song, of course. And, it’s more than a song.
It conjures up memories for many. It reminds people of their accomplishments and achievements. It makes women recognize when they were girls, they were sailing boats, paddling canoes, surfing on wind surfers, and swimming to the Big Float, to Oak Island, across the Soapies, out to the Marjorie. Many of these references are Runoia unique names for the names of floating rafts or the area we have recreational swim in at camp. Those tales are another story for another blog!
But the important thing is girls, young and older are propelling through and over the water and learning skills Out on the Blue Waves. So, it’s a phrase that’s more than a song. Just to satisfy your curiosity, here’s the song lyrics to the chorus:
Out on the blue waves, where summer breezes blow
Our boats go sailing into sunset glow.
We leave the shoreline, to realms of dreams we go,
Out to the center of the lake where breezes blow.
and you can hear the whole song here
Enjoy and be proud of all you accomplish #runoiagals !!
