When I learned that I am bad at water sports

My flight out of Perth didn't leave until late at night, so what better way to spend my last hours than on a boat?

The Swan River looks like a lake, but maybe I'm just bad at recognizing bodies of water.

Also, it's a salt water river. This Texan was confused.

However, this meant that we got to see dolphins!

This also means that sharks sometimes sneak into the river.

I cast aside my fears and tried my hand [or legs] at water skiing. 


I am not the most naturally athletic person, but I am also pretty competitive and stubborn. I gave myself three tries to get up so that I would not spend too much time embarrassing myself.

Let's just say that after three tries I was back on the boat sunbathing.

Will says my effort was good and that I pretty much got up on my second try. I am determined to do better next time!

Salt water river... I'm so confused. That photo of you chilling on the boat is super cute though :)

i probably would suck at water skiing too....only because i insist on wearing the triple-thick lifevest. HATE deep water!

I LOVED waterskiing as a child! We did it every summer! A few years ago I tried again...and realized that my "center of gravity" had drastically shifted since I was twelve and I was no longer able to get up on skiis!
But hey...sunbathing is awesome too!!! :)
