As I mentioned in my last post Joe and Tara (and of course little Milo) took me out for a spin in their boat. What a time I had !!
Now you’d think that someone who was raised right on the Atlantic Ocean would be quite comfortable with the water. NOT !! I think I must have almost drowned when I was a kid ‘cause I have a love/fear of the water.
Love looking at it, walking around it, being by it – but not IN IT !
Here’s Milo looking way cool in his life jacket…
And Joe heading down the ramp to get the boat ready for take-off !
I decided not to take Bennie with me although they said I could. I figured I’d have enough on my hands handling myself !
Some of the following videos are a bit blurry for the first second or so but they clear up.
BACKING OUT – The calmest part of the ride.
APPROACHING THE HARRISON RIVER BRIDGE – He’s still being considerate and going slow.
HE’S PICKS UP SPEED ! I had a TIGHT GRIP on something.
GOING UNDER THE BRIDGE – Gawd it looked like we were going to hit that bridge so I ducked which is why the camera went haywire at the end.
GOING INTO SOME CURRENTS
MORE CURRENTS – I think they had a great time watching the FEAR on my face.
DELIBERATELY GOING THROUGH THE CURRENTS – Lots of debris in the water so you gotta really watch where you are going.
DEAD END – He kept going down this part of the River and it looked like a dead end to me.
And it was a dead end. He told me to “Hold On” – I didn’t realize he really meant HOLD ON !! As he put the boat into a spin and got us turned around.
I had a BLAST !
