LOL- yup, it's a LONG one today- well I have story to share with you all ( thanks to Mrs Miles who reminded me off it-LOL).
First off Jazzy sent me a message this morning to say the funeral went off well and that she is extremely tired( understandable)- but will get on her blog the minute she has some strength to thank everyone personally. She said your messages got her through yesterday. Thank you again for those wonderful messages of love and support!
On Monday Mrs Miles asked in my message box if I ever get to *our beach* and what they look like - you know the sand etc-
Well the story I want to tell you today happened just outside Port Elizabeth in a sleepy little surfing town called Jeffreys Bay. (all photo's compliments of Magic Seaweed.com ) Jeffreys Bay is one of the five most famous surfing destinations in the world and hosts the annual Billabong Pro WCT surfing event at Supertubes during the month of July.
As *young adults* just finished school and studying this was a favourite weekend trip as all the boys used to boogie board, surf or paddle ski-
We used to pack the old VW Kombi with all the surfing boards, braai suff ( BBQ) and of course the cooler box full of beers and wine! Now there are TWO parts to Jeffreys- the place where the *heavy surfers* go ( the Point or Tubes) and well for *girls like me* there is the swimming beach-lol
My friend Claire ( who though blessed with dark hair should have been a blonde-LOL) and I where the *girls* that used to go with. Well we had watched the boys surfing the *heavy sets of waves* and as much as I used to boogie board - there was NO WAYS in hell I would join that lot- they would ride straight over me-LOL. Wayne's cousin Mike had just bought himself a new paddle ski- and well we had moved down to the swimming beach for our Braai and a rest- BWAHAHA, yeah here it comes-lol
Claire and I decide in our *wine intoxicated* brains that we would don the wetsuits taken off by the boys ( who were now concentrating on getting a fire going) and take Mikes board out for a test in the smaller waves!- UHUM- We drag it down to the sea looking like seals with skins toooo big for us! I think Wayne's wetsuit crotch hung down by my knees! LOL. And Claire jumps in to the seat with the paddle and I hang on the back of the board- we are giggling now as the boys haven't noticed at all- she keeps paddling as the waves are actually further out here on this part of the beach- OH GOODNESS, when we turn the board around to go back ( we wanted to take turns here now)- we are miles out - and the beach looks TINY!-
No panic yet- Until I let go of the back and she keeps falling OFF- we start laughing- we are both strong swimmers and she jumps off the board and we both try PUSH it from behind kicking like crazy- lol,It's working- But there is a paddle that keeps falling off the board and Claire keeps telling me she *pee'd* in the wetsuit and it feels all WARM- That was me finished- I started laughing and now we are floating out to sea again hanging on a unmanned ski-which we can't just leave as it's NEW- I tell Claire to swim back and fetch one of the boys on the other board to fetch this ONE-
NOOOOO- she say's she's not getting into trouble on that side- WE'LL do it- LOL- Well just as we were about to start kicking again- we hear this TTTOOOOOOOTTTTTT, and someone shouting at us- OMG- It's a CHOKKA boat! And they saw us- decided to stop and see if the *chicks* needed help- Claire just shouts yes- thinking they are going to just give us a tow closer to shore-
BWAHAHAHA- no - they bring the huge boat up next to us and tell us to pass them the board- and as we pass the paddle- these hands hang down and grip us up under our ARMPITS! We get lifted *armpit style* into this fishing boat FULL of dirty men with NO TEETH etc and now we get the hysterical giggles- These poor guys just looked at us and shook their heads-
They rammed that boat straight up the swimming beach sand!!! Right in front of the boys ( who were watching this lot from the shore)- and then politely lifted us UP ARMPIT style again and dropped us overboard on the sand-with board intact- BWAHAHAHAHA. WE gathered an audience too. People had come to see this boat LAND and here we were being dropped off- arrrgh, embarrassing to say the least- but something I will NEVER EVER FORGET! ROTF!
And to show you what a paddle ski is- I did this LO of MIKES son Keaton ( yup YEARS after this event lol)
