Parasailing

Today we went parasailing. Two of our group are missing in this photo (Brenda's mom Susan and Michelle's mother-in-law Mary were lounging at the pool.) From left to right are Brenda, me, Tammy, Wendy, Michelle and Barb. Our crew is in the background. Tanned young men. Too bad, huh?Looks like fun, doesn't it? I don't know what I thought parasailing was, but this was not only a blast, but so easy. Four of us decided to do it, and Barb and Michelle went out on the boat to watch. Below are sisters Tammy and Wendy, just taking off.
And here Brenda and I are just taking off. The crew was great, and while the captain was in charge of the boat, his comrade strapped us in and took photos. Toward the end of each flight, they dunked us in the water. It took much of the day for my pants to dry out, but I'd only worn them to protect my sunburned thighs. I think I'm immune to sunscreen.
