Summer is flying by and I’ve been super busy!
I did something brave last week, I jumped off a bridge into a lake (Palisades Reservoir) It was part of our summer family reunion activities ❤️ we also floated down Salt River but no video (lots more fun)
I didn’t know it was on my bucket list; I’ve never jumped off a bridge before. I’ve never jumped off a cliff before.
I don’t know why, now that I’m older, I’m doing all these things? Maybe age causes brain damage??
Apparently there is a correct way to jump off a bridge into water. Who knew?? Not me 🤨 and oddly enough I did not ask questions.
It was a high bridge (high to me) in a little cove of the reservoir I often played in while growing up. I learned to water ski there when I was young. I personally still like water skiing better 😊
Apparently one should point the toes, drop in the water straight, with your arms high above your head coming to a point or dive like Greg Louganis (but I can’t do that!) LOL
So I just jumped off when I gathered the courage. My left arm was out to my side with my elbow bent. My right arm tried to plug my nose but missed as the force of the water whipped my hand up and I scratched my own forehead. The water was pretty deep and took awhile to rise to the surface and I had a feeling I would drown (panicked).
But I have it on video that I was brave so I never have to do it again. Thankfully my left arm isn’t hurting so bad anymore 😂😂
I hope you enjoy my video- bridge jumping
