I went sailing! I was going to get sailing lessons, from a guy named Micky, but when I got there, he told me the water/wind were too dangerous for me to go out on my own. So, he took me out instead! First, on the smaller catamaran… the trip went something like this:  Micky: “Don’t worry, we won’t capsize.” (five minutes later) “As long as the boat doesn’t nose-dive, we’ll be okay.” (five minutes later) “You’re safe as long as you’re with me.” (five minutes later) “If we capsize, just don’t panic. These are easy to flip back over.“😧😳

Wellll, we didn’t capsize – whew! And we went back and did another trip around the island in the biggest catamaran with two large Norweigans who helped weigh us down 😊

Micky was awesome. Wish I was here another day to go sailing more and to try it alone. Too bad I don’t have a Go-Pro, to get pictures!

  1. I’m glad you didn’t capsize. That place looks beautiful. It’s good to see you with a big smile on your face.
