I Surfed! (My Weekly Winner Photos)

Those who know me well would know that this is a big deal. I never thought I'd surf in my whole life - never! I am such a chicken when it comes to swimming, especially in the ocean. I also am very uncoordinated and not sporty. Well, my friend Sol who is a great surfer never gave up on me. She taught me how to surf. And thank to Sol, I did! Here's the proof:

In this first photo, I was quite scared. I was still very hesitant. I thought I would make a fool of myself if I try....


But I tried anyway. This is the first attempt. Not bad...


Getting up... Sol said "look up ... never look down ..."


And up .... I stood! and I tried to balance...


And I surfed! I can't believe it, I surfed!


Thank you Sol! Thank you very much for being such a great surf instructor!


And here's Sol for the "real surf" photo. She's amazing!



She's pretty amazing!


So...these my friends are my WEEKLY WINNERS for this week. For more "winner photos", visit Lotus at Sarcastic Mom Blog.

Well Done with the surfing, looks great and you did really well.
Wish the weather here was warm enough to swim in the sea, we woke this morning to snow!
Thanks for commenting on my blog, hope you will visit again soon.
Warmest wishes,
Tabitha
