Long Day of Travel
My family and I go on a beach trip with our family friends at the end of the summer each year. This past year we chose to go to the small island of eleuthra.
I've been a thrill seeker for as long as I can remember. I started out small with riding big roller coasters and snorkeling and whatnot. Eventually I had the opportunity to parasail, which I highly recommend, and it was one of the best moments of my life! But this time I decided to go big...
What the HELL was I thinking?!
We had a three hour flight to Florida and then ended up having our flight delayed multiple times. After that we had to get on a damn prop plane! You want to talk about a bumpy ride... Gave me lots of time to think about the thrill I had chosen to experience though.
Glad I did it, NEVER again
Owww... My tailbone
Before we got to the destination, we made a stop at a coral reef and swam down to see all the colorful fish. There were so many different schools of fish swimming between the rocks and crevices. My favorite was an all black fish with iridescent blue stripes.
When we got to the cliff the guide told us that it was about 35-40 feet tall and that we had to keep our arms and ankles crossed. We had to climb up the side of the cliff, which was all sharp lava rock, to get to the top. I had decided awhile ago that I would jump first.
Of course when we got to the top it looked like a 60 foot drop. Still, I was adamant about going first and so I stood there for a few seconds and then took the plunge. There was a point in the air where it felt like I was supposed to have already hit the water, but I was still falling. At that point every thought in my mind went out the window and I ended up hitting the water wrong.
