Day 4: Parasailing in St. Thomas

St. Thomas is a beautiful island! We started our morning out in the Amber Palace come to find out we were meeting in the wrong place. LOL So before we left, Sarah and I decided to take a couple of pictures.
This is the beautiful Amber Palace where we hold many memories. :)

Sarah...just hanging out...about to go meet our friends!

What?! Seriously??

Venita all ready to get up in the air!

V's up!!

Here I am...all set and ready to go!

I'm up...and doing okay....

Starting to wonder why I am really flying through the

300 feet up in the air!! Afraid of heights and can't swim...not a good combination. LOL It was beautiful up there though! I did good until I looked down, then I kinda freaked out! I was hanging on to that rope for dear life, like thats really going to help anything! LOL

Coming back was a little scary...I wanted to make sure I landed back on the boat! LOL I did and all was good! It really was a great experience even though it was a little scary! Everyone needs to try it! :)

The next few pictures are as we were coming back to land after our big adventure! :) Sooo beautiful!!!

Glad you went parasailing. I did that in Hawaii and LOVED it. I snorkeled in St. Thomas but wish I could have gone into town, also. Not enough time...:(
