      That's nice to know Pete. With regards to Water skiiing, wherever you are, there will be an Instructor to guide you.

      Philipo, I wonder if you are close to Bar Beach in Lagos and enjoy going there with your family once in a while.

      Mac Mission, you know what they say - "Feel the fear and do it anyway".

      Thank you all, appreciate your comments.

      I like white water rafting; not to rough though. I also like to drift along in a boat in the ocean or a lake. I want to try to water ski but I've never gotten around to it.
