A Morning Jet Skiing in Sharjah …

So last weekend Perry and I headed up to Sharjah with our friend Paul and a couple of others for a morning of Jet Skiing … It was quite a last minute change of plans for our Friday morning … and we were both glad we went along … we had great fun and it was my first time on a Jet Ski and it had been something I’d wanted to try for some time …
