Wave Runner (Day 6) - final post for San Diego!

We ended our last day with something my sister-in-law suggested. We rented Wave Runners! I wasn't sure I wanted to do this, but in the end I gave it a try.

My sister-in-law took Alexandra on the back of her Wave Runner and I went alone. I was pretty scared and didn't think I'd go faster than 10 mph. Boy, was I wrong!

I LOVED the Wave Runner! We got to spend an hour and a half on the bay and I got pretty comfortable. At my fastest, I went 52 mph - the fastest it would go! One of the neatest things we saw was on one of the floating markers.... We got to ride really close to the marker and 2 harbor seals were sunning on it! We visited the marker several times just to see the seals.
Unfortunately, I didn't have a water camera, so I didn't take any photos while we were out. So, all I have our my memories - and the photos of the sign and one of our Wave Runners.
Well, that's it for our trip to San Diego! We already have another big trip in the works... this one isn't until summer, but it'll be wonderful! So, stay tuned. ;-)

I have never driven a wave runner on my own, but have been on the back of one. They are sooo much fun! Oh I wish that you could have gotten the photos of the seals. I bet that was just so cool to see up close. Thanks so much for sharing your trip with us. :0)

I hate to disappoint you, but I've taken my camera on the jetski with me many times. I'm very careful with it; I keep it in a ziplock until I'm ready to use it, but then I pull it out, put the wrist strap on, and shoot away. I got some cute photos and put them on my blog. I will admit that I'm not the best jetski driver, though.
