Jet Skiing!

In true crazy format, my sister calls this morning and says “Hey, want to go rent some jet skis and run around the lake?” To which I respond “duh.”
I love riding jet skis and I’ve been trying to persuade my family to buy some so we can have fun on the water.Β  But, unfortunately, we don’t have one yet so we had to stick to renting one for the day! So we pack up our two girls…hers is 21 and a marine patrol officer and mine is 7 and super excited!
The people at the rental place were super nice. We showed them our boaters licenses and 3 skis later we were on the lake.
Here are some pictures of our adventures!

We had a fantastic time other than my sisters jet ski had a mechanical failure which leads her to float around longer than expected. We also had a small shower pass over us. Normally rain is not a problem but when you are careening across the lake at 38 miles per hour the rain feels like tiny bullets hitting your skin. Little Girl hid behind me and used me as a human shield A small price to pay for a great time on the lake.

If you ever get the chance to go on a jet ski Do IT!

  1. Wow. Looks so much fun and something that would defiantly love to do X #Blogstravaganza

  2. Hi Tracy, having a fear of deep water jetskiing isn’t something I would do, but it does look like fun. Those spur of the moment days build wonderful memories!


  3. The hubs and my boys did jet skiing a couple of times at a beach that’s quite near to where my in-laws stay. I never tried though. I think it’s because of my fear of an accident happening. A year ago,a rider lost control of his vehicle and rammed into another jet skiier whose son was riding as pillion. The poor boy died on the spot.


  4. This looks like so much fun, my husband would love to try it out! Thanks so much for sharing with #Blogstravaganza xx

    This does look like fun! We grew up near a lake and I’ve seen people doing activities on the water, but I’ve never done anything but swimming!

  17. Marko

    Nice , but unfortunately don’t have near me close any lakes or big enough rivers that would allow me jet-skiing .

    Jet-skiing in addition with snow jet skiing is perfect fun
