Up In The Air

Yesterday was another beautiful summer day and we decided to head back “down the shore” . We situated ourselves close to the ocean to be able to take in the full breadth of the water and the goings on there. As I looked up into the sky I saw people Parasailing.  Parasailing is an “activity” when a person or persons are towed behind a boat while attached to a specially designed canopy wing that reminds one of a parachute, known as a parasail wing. As a person with a fear of heights and also not a great fan of swimming in the depths of the ocean, just seeing this sight gave me goose bumps. For $140.00 two people can fly high above the ocean taking in the beach from a different vantage point. If you want to sit in the boat and watch, you can for $20.00.

At one point the flying high people dipped low coming close to the water which I realized was no mistake, rather it added to the excitement as they would be lifted high again in a minute. It made for great watching, seeing how people are fearless and ready to have fun.

I then turned my attention to a boy flying a kite from the beach. It was a windy day and perfect for it. I much preferred that type of flying- a kite in the air rather than people over the ocean.

  1. I always wanted to go para-sailing but it was always too expensive. And anyway, I like boats too. Even a canoe or a rowboat will do the job. But the best I think was sailing. Especially being a passenger and letting other people do all the work. Nice summertime post 🙂

  2. me too :o) I rather have my feet on the ground :o) I love flying kites, they are like a small “hello” from childhood. I once won a kite competition and won a drawing book and pencils, I was so proud that I shared my bed that night with my champion kite :o)
