Birthday celebrations for the big 40
Brendon and I were on one jet-ski with the tour guide on another. He had given all the instructions before we launched and then we just waited in this area while he launched his.
Below: We stopped in a bit of a sheltered area and I had a turn doing some driving. I was more than happy to get Brendon back in the drivers seat though. I found that as soon as we picked up speed and then hit a little bump, I would just let go of the accelerator and we would almost come to an immediate stop. So it was a bit of a stop and go ride with me driving.
It did expose the amazing layers of rock formed by the various volcanic eruptions. And to the left of this photo you can see a lava vent (the vertical strip of rock).
A little video to give a bit of what it was like. The really fun parts I was not able to video as I was hanging on with both hands. :-)
Getting so big now that some have to drink from the other side. :-)
