Parasailing at Sapphire Beach

Since we were staying at a condo at Sapphire Beach, we decided to use the vendor that was located there in the marina.

I looked online and decided to pick an 11am spot. Then I noticed that if you book online it's actually cheaper...so that's what I did.

It was almost 11 and we headed over to the marina. It looked like this was really going to happen for us today! We were all so excited. 

A pelican was waiting for our arrival and it was time to board the "Just Chute Me" boat. We also had another couple with us for this trip.

It didn't take long and we were off. As we went along, we started gearing up with our life jackets and he came around and put on our harness. It looked like we were going first! Yikes! (Not really, we were all excited and not nervous at all ... but I guess we were the guinea pigs). He said "We haven't lost anyone yet today. Wait, I think this is how you put them together, I watched the youtube video". LOL He was funny.

They had the hubby go first, then Sakari and then it was my turn. Sit down and slide along into the harness...only my slide consisted of my bathing suit shorts sliiiiiding dooooown! Oops. I wiggled and wiggled trying to get them back up the best I could. 

And then it was lift off time...

I had given Kendra my other camera so that she could take pictures from down below. See, it's always good to have an extra camera for things like this. Although I have to say, she really didn't take many pictures while we were up there. She's definitely not my child. Maybe she should have given it to Kam instead. I know I can count on Kam to take plenty. 

Ok, so about the parasailing experience...OH EM GEE! It was AMAZING! Gliding in the air so high up and seeing everything down below. I never wanted to come down. It was SO peaceful up there. Sakari said she felt like a bird and loved it! She giggled with excitement and said "hello" and waved to the paraglider down below us. You could tell she was having a great time and it's something that she has always wanted to do.
