parasailing

Many people take their vacation holiday over Christmas and New Year's here in New Zealand. Stores are closed on Christmas Day, New Year's Day and the day after New Year's. I'll leave you to your own conclusions about that. Anyway, the second of  January was nice and sunny so we went for a ride and happened to see these two guys jump off a hillside by the ocean called Paritutu Rock. It's a pretty big rock.

Hi Betty,

Gorgeous shot. However, I'd never have the nerve to try it. Thanks for sharing.

Have a Happy Blue Monday.

Hello Betty, Thank you for your visit. Your photo of the people para-sailing is awesome. Nice blue as well.

We are having cold weather here and it is -5 right now. Colder than usual that is for sure. What is all this talk about Global Warming. HA!

Have a wonderful 2014.
xo, Jeanne

They call this sport here in California "hang-gliding." Looks so adventurous! Sadly some retailers here are not (or are not able to) take off on these holidays.

I'm know if I was up there doing that I'd have my eyes shut!!! How clever are you to take that photo, it's wonderful.

If I wasn't afraid of heights now this might be fun. Wonderful shot.
