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!
