I scratched one thing off my "Things to Do Before I Die" list, and that's jet ski! Holy crap, those things are not like the arcade rides they have at ESPN zone. I had 6 foot swells in some places and the wave runner would go shooting over them and land six feet with a smack. If I was a dude, my balls would have been hurtin. My arms were hurting from a death grip and the wave runner dropping at random intervals and me holding on. I tried standing at first but eventually moved to sitting, even though my board shorts road up. It was kinda scary, but LOADS of fun! It was only the tour guide and me, so it wasn't bad at all. Those things go fast, too. I also got a lot of salt water in my eyes. The tour guide told me that all the celebs stay in Canille Bay, and currently Michael J. Fox is on the island. I haven't seen him yet, though, hehe.
Also the other day we went on a 2 hour trip on a boat to a site for snorkiling. I saw some cool fish and sea urchins, but it wasn't that great a site, I thought. Later when we were on the open water, I DID see a sea turtle though, that was about 3 feet long. It just looked like a green mass, but it was still pretty damn cool.
Other than that, I'm just sunburned in a few places and have finished my Star Wars books (sooooooo good, why didn't my friends tell me about these earlier?!?!)
I <3 Wedge Antilles!!
Hope everyone has an awesome week!
