July 4, 2010

Happy Independence Day!!! We spent the day on Crystal Lake in Gray, Maine. I had an amazing opportunity to try out water skiing (nope, never did make it up, but I swollowed enough water to make sure I will never ever again be dehydrated!!) and tubing!

Let’s check out me tubing (just for the record, I was on the tube for a good 10 minutes before I fell off…it doesn’t look like that in the pictures posted here, but I really was on for a LONG time)!

Started off nice enough - I was told to just hang on, white knuckle it! Oh don't mind the wedgie...I couldn't do anything about it once I got onto the tube!

Starting to pick up speed hitting my first wave.

Hanging on for dear life.

Caught some air and I'm still smiling!

Ok landed that wave safely...but I can see whats ahead. I wish you were able to clearly see the horrified look I have on my face in this picture, because I can see that I am about to hit a series of waves...but it's sooo blury.

Oh boy, here they come!

And there I go...

Wipeout!!

Where's Dana? Yeah, I'm the idiot who wrapped the tow rope around my wrist for a ride back to the dock...I'm between the boat and the tube. I now am sporting a brush burn on my left wrist. Yup I'm cool. I could have snapped off my wrist because of the tension of the tow rope.

Despite drinking 90% of the water in the lake (sorry residents of Crystal Lake) I had a blast!!
