I’ve never been someone who was afraid of heights, so when the idea of parasailing was brought to me, I gladly accepted the offer!
There I was, on a beautiful beach loaded with sugar-white sands and emerald-green clear water. The warm summer breeze was perfect. The sun was starting to make its way down and there was a slight hint of pale yellow, orange and a hint of pastel blue. And there I was on a boat with 7 other brave souls, wrapped up tightly in a life jacket with all sort of metal hooks and contraptions on the shoulders. When it was my turn, I nervously walked to the edge and did exactly was the instructor told me: “…grab this top handle and sit down.” Not knowing exactly what to expect next, the boat picked up speed and SHOOOP! I immediately was blown away, then up high into the sky.
The sugar-white shore looked more and more like a trail of spilled coffee creamer against deep green and blue waters. I looked around and saw seagulls and pelicans, then I looked down at the gently moving glass ocean. I was flying so high and it felt amazing!! I was floating through the warm summer air like a free bird, in awe of the vastness and beauty of the waters beneath. If you every have the opportunity to go parasailing, all I have to say is, GO!! It is an experience you will not forget and just thinking back to it will fade away the stress of any day!
