Tula Splashes Out

Monday, January 18, 2010

Tula was down by the beach splashing around in the shallow water when a very fast boat went past her towing a water skier. The water skier splashed up lots of water which sparkled in the sunlight as it fell back down to the water. It really looked like a lot of fun to Tula.

Tula floated in the water thinking about how slow and steady she was when she moved, not fast and flashy like the water skier behind the speed boat. She dreamed about one day having a try at water skiing, but thought she would have trouble getting her flippers into the boots on the water skis.

"Oh well" thought Tula "never mind - I will just have to stay here and splash around and chase the baby jelly fish today...." Tula flipped over and dove under the water to chase the jelly fish. It was fun, Tula giggled as she chased the jelly fish making lots of bubbles go through the water to the surface.

Even Tula can't swim underwater without coming up for air and when she did she gave herself and the water skier a big fright - she came up right next to him as he fell off his skis.

"Are you alright?" asked Tula

"Yes I think so" he replied.

"Is it as much fun as it looks?" asked Tula.

"Oh yes it is great - you feel like the wind" he said.

"I'd love to try but I don't think my flippers will fit in your skis" said Tula.

"No they wouldn't, but wait a minute, your shell is hard isn't it?" he asked

"Oh yes my shell is tough and very, very hard" said Tula as the boat came round to pick up the skier.

"Why don't you try to ski on your back, I'll help you, It'll be fun he said.

"Oh could we" exclaimed Tula "That would be fun!"

So the boat picked up Tula and the skier with Tula holding on tight to the rope and balancing on her shell with the skier holding on behind her. The boat picked up speed and soon Tula was skimming across the top of the water with a beautiful wake of shimmering water flinging into the air.  Tula went around in a big circle with the skier and then they let go of the rope.

Tula knew that it had been one of the fastest things she had ever done. It was also on of the most fun things she had ever tried.

"Thank you so much said Tula to the skier. "Now I know I can try almost anything that I want to..."

"Bye Bye Tula" said the skier.

"Bye and thanks again" replied Tula as she swam back to the beach to dream about her next adventure.
