Tennessee Watersports

This past weekend we took a little mid-summer trip down to Tennessee. It was hot and HUMID, so we spent a lot of time on the water. The first order of business was water-skiing, which is a forte of Andrea's family. For me... not so much. I had never tried it before, and ended up w/ a pretty nasty (and painful) muscle spasm (and never actually got up on the skis). I'll stick to snow skis, thank you very much! But I had a great time hanging out on the boat and watching everyone else in action.

In addition to water-skiing, we also went rafting on the Ocoee River. The weather provided a dramatic backdrop on that adventure, as we spent about half of the rafting trip in a full blown thunder/lightning storm!

Overall, a great trip! It was nice to get out of SLC for a long weekend... although I have to say that the dry heat felt pretty good when we got off the plane this morning!

When it comes to water-skiing... I'm better at just hanging out on the boat!
