Water Skiing on the Ohio River

Saturday, my husband and I took my son and nephew boating and water skiing on the Ohio River.  I’ve been water skiing since my 20’s and love slalom skiing (with one ski).  We prefer the Ohio River to the area lakes because there are fewer boats, which means better skiing conditions.  Because of weather and a surgery that my husband had, this was only the second time we’ve taken the boat out this season and most likely the last.  Temperatures are supposed to drop into the 60’s by this weekend.  The water was quite cold but invigorating!  Slalom skiing is like riding a bike, once you’ve mastered it, you don’t forget how to do it.  It feels great to be strong and continue to participate in sports as I get older.

My son took some good shots…
