Let's Go Parasailing

 By: James Smi
In mountain climbing, experts suggest that one must not go on an expedition all by himself. This is understandable because mountain climbing is quite risky and dangerous. Question is, can we say the same thing about parasailing?

Parasailing has become popular all around the United States. Any one brave enough can try this fun and adventurous activity. Parasailing has been around as a recreational activity for about 30 years. Its designs have adapted to modern times that will allow any individual to take flight, as if he were riding a roller coaster. If you would like to fly like a bird, then this is the flight for you.

The flight is enjoyable and breathtaking. Those who have tried it claim that the parasail is stable and it lets the passenger take in each moment of the ride. Considering the fact that he doesn't have to steer, all he has to do is take in the view.

Landing isn't as daunting as it seems. The whole process is that the boat or the 4-wheel vehicle slows down until the parasailor lowers himself down to the ground.

Normally, a parasailor has a driver and a ground crew with him when he goes parasailing. It is the driver's task to tow the parasailor and the parachute. As for the ground crew, they make sure that all harnesses are locked and protect the parasailor when he's high up in the sky.

The question imposed here is whether one can go parasailing alone - meaning if one can take off at the customized flight pad all by himself. The answer is yes. The only requirement is whether you are over 10 years old.

For children who are aged 10 or below, it is strongly advised that one of the people from the ground crew is with him or her. This is called 'tandem parasailing.' Some parents insist that they ride with their child.

So what are you waiting for? You can soar high up the Caribbean even with your speedboat dragging you on the water or your balloon gliding you in between the clouds.

Parasailing has quickly become a fun-filled adventure for those who are risky and brave enough to try. Imagine getting a spectacular view for a cheap price. It is open to everyone. Whatever you pay for parasailing packages, we're sure it will be worth it.

It was a clear, warm summer afternoon on Lake Chaubunagungamaug in Webster, Massachusetts. We were anchored in a quiet cove, playing a lively game of cribbage when I spotted a pair of eagles soaring high above us. It was as if they were playing a game of tag. Then suddenly one of the eagles headed straight down into the water and came back up with a big fish in its beak. He flew to a tall bushy pine tree nearby to enjoy his fresh catch.
Families today are all electronically connected. Facebook, Twitter and texting are the norm today. When I grew up such things were not available to us and many of us have “Happy Memories” of an earlier day. The younger generation today is losing its ability to create "Happy Memories" and I feel for them. Most of the younger generation have not had the chance to see the sun rise over a low hanging fog on a beautiful lake.
Summer time is here, let's enjoy all the activities that goes along with that and avoid pesky insects through prevention/treatment. The four ‘B’s of Summer; BBQ, Baseball, Beaches and Bugs! Like many of you, I have my favorite BBQ meal (Ribs) and favorite Baseball team (Tampa Bay Rays) and of course my favorite beaches (St. Petersburg-Belleair); but who has a favorite bug?
