ˈwädərˌskē/
verb
gerund or present participle: water-skiing
  1. skim the surface of water on waterskis.

In my list of 101 things to do in 1001 days… one of the things I’ve always wanted to do is to try to skim on the top of the water and not be dragged like a ball of skin half under the water.  While in Nova Scotia… I was at Kevin’s and they had a boat and he had some new ski’s that he wanted to try out.  He asked me if I wanted to try and I jumped at the chance.

I’m dying to try it again.  I could not get out of the water and I had 4 or 5 attempts.  So hard.  My mind thinks what would have happened if I got up on the water.  I was pretty good at sitting in the tube 😉

You can view my OSE video for July that covers the trip and our dinner at Kevin’s and playing with the boat.

Chantal also gave it a shot and her hands were not strong to hold the bar to pull herself out of the water.  I thought she would have the best shot from the Deveau’s.  Kevin ripped it up and went for a while and spilled twice.
