Day Three – Waterskiing

8 Feb

The “carrot” for Lisa to move to Bacalar with me was that she could have a boat. For almost 20 years I have know that her dream is to own property on water that is home to a ski boat. I am not a fan of things that go vroom, so I have been less than supportive of the idea. I’m more of a kayak, sail boat, bicycle kinda gal. When Steven (our realtor) rounded up some friends to take us out on the lake, the water was “like glass”, which is perfect for water skiing, or so I am told. The guys were a lot of fun and watching Jimmy (boat owner) get up on skis for the first time was a blast. But the significant thing that happened for us was that we stopped at David’s house. He is a part-time resident with a lot that is approximately the same size and slope as the one we considered. His property provided us with a vision of what we could do with the lot we visited, where we would put the house, etc. All of a sudden, the pieces fell into place. I will post pictures of the property next time.

      This has been such an amazing process. When we finally get to drive out of town, we will be in shock for…a long time. Yeeha, this IS fun (most of the time).

    As an advid water skier, I could not ask for more perfect conditions. The water was like ice, temperature was perfect and I think there weren’t any other boats at that time. To top it off, I had three amigos to play with. My next adventure is to have Steven teach me to wake board. Retirement is going to be awsome. Next (for me) is the boat, equipment and a cell phone for my wife to track me down. I will know every inch of that place probably before we have our house built.

      Life is about having fun and learning stuff. We will get to do both in spades.
