Alright, so one of the things I’ve wanted to do on my ever growing bucket list is to go jet skiing and today, I DID JUST THAT!
THAT WAS LITERALLY THE MOST FUN I’VE HAD IN A REALLY REALLY INSANELY F*CKING LONG TIME.
My older sister and her boyfriend came up to visit us and he has a jet ski (and I license to use it) so he brought it up with them and, after breakfast, we took it out for a ride. He loaded it into the river and sat up front (to steer and all), my sister sat in the middle and I ended up sitting on the end.
We went out of the river mouth, along the beach (but further out to avoid the crashing waves) and then just around the ocean but always with at least one beach in sight. I will admit that I did scream every now and again (especially at the beginning), had to keep readjusting from constant wedgies and -at one point- I almost (literally) flew off the back when we were airborne but the adrenaline rush was 100 times worth it!
And you know those idiots that just seem to wave at everyone they pass by with the goofiest grin on their face? Yeah, hi! That was me when we were on the jet ski but who cares when you’re enjoying the moment! Did I mention I rode a jet ski?
Nearing the end, when we entered the mouth of the river, they taught me how to steer, gave me a go at driving the jet ski for the rest of the way and we ended up taking a little detour so I could have more of a go. I. F*CKING. SLAYED. Almost… Needless to say, I added “Get a PWC (jet ski) license” to my bucket list because I can’t wait to do it again!
On the downside to the whole thing – When I was sitting at the back, while I was holding into my sister’s life jacket, I was also clutching the jet ski’s back handles with my legs (you know, not wanting to fall off and all) and now those parts of my legs are killing me. It was like I was literally clutching on for my life and I have no idea whether or not there’s going to be massive bruising on those parts or not tomorrow.
Honestly though, I wish I could thank my sister and her boyfriend even more. I’m really not the best at showing how grateful I am to people but that was seriously the most fun I’ve had in ages and I’m still smiling at how great it was. AAHHH. I loved today! XD
