Parasailing was amazing! DS and DH went singles and DD and I went tandem. DD and i are both a little scared of heights and let me be honest. If you're afraid of heights this is scary. Every time the wind kicked up and picked up the slack on the rope it made us nervous. We were both holding on for dear life even though technically we didn't have to do this as we were sagely harnessed in. We both felt like we were gonna fall out of the "seat" even though we logically knew we couldn't. That said, I would do it again and it was worth every penny for the fabulous view!

Thank you for sharing your thoughts....I admit, I am a tad scared about this, but I am committed now with the groupon bought, and I just hope I can overcome my fear and enjoy it! Where tips expected for this excursion? Thanks again for your live report, I am loving it! have fun meeting our Dani, wish I could be there with y'all!

Just got home in Chicago! We have some crazy thunderstorms rolling through the area right now so I'm hoping they're gone in time for my 6am flight tomorrow to Orlando!
