Let's go again!
Nov. 24 – Jet boat ride
Oh, this was so cool!!!!! We dressed up in black raincoats and put on life preservers and got to ride around in the jet boat. We looked crazy, but we certainly had a great time. The jet boat was designed by a New Zealander to be used on the shallow rivers. Well, we raced up river stopping a couple of times to look at scenery or hear about some of the geology, history and general information about the area, and did a couple of 360 degree turns just for the fun of it. Then we raced down the river doing more of the same. At one stop, one of the guys in the group said, “I've gotta get me one of these things!” Someone else asked Shayle, our boat driver, if he paid the company to let him play with the boats. He said no, that someone had to do the job so he might as well be the one to do it. Let's do this again tomorrow!
