Parasailing at Boracay

It was raining when we woke-up on our second Bora day. This was the day when most of our air-water activities were scheduled. Good thing, we did the helmet diving on the first day which was sunny and no rain. I was just thinking, had we done the diving this day _ rain drops might stir off the sea and the view under would get blurred _ hahaha! whateves !

I looked outside and saw people not affected of the rain. Lots were swimming and water activities were goin' pretty hectic.

Just right on cue, after breakfast, the rain stopped and we went on with our first challenge of the day. The parasailing ! - the sport of soaring while harnessed to a parasail that is towed by a motorboat, or other fast-moving vehicle, from which one often releases oneself to float freely.

We changed boat twice. First boat sent us to the middle of the sea station where we waited for our second boat which brought us further to where we held the parasailing.

After signing the waiver, the staff prepared us with some quick tutorial do's and don't's of parasailing. We wore life vests and belts that would attach us to the parachute.

The parachute was now ready to take us up ! ! !

The equipment was ready, quite not us ! We were still throwing nervous questions even when we were already moving up ! hhahah!

Then we started to elevate from the sea level. We felt the air brushing our legs. A staff had to shout out that we could now move our legs, hahaha! Because up to that level, we were so tense, our legs were still straight forward the way they were on initial position .

up . . .

up. . .

and away ! ! !

It was so nice up there. Not frightening at all as we were expecting it. It was serene and we were able to enjoy the Boracay sceneries on bird's eye view.

soaring higher. . .

and higher. . .

We felt a lil' colder at one point so we did some hand signals to stop sending us higher.

Then it was time . . to land. We were shouting that we wanted more time up there. But time was up! We were pulled back . . sigh .

found in every boat we rode

Abrupt ending of the climax scene . . hehe ;D

It was great ! ! !
