The two RV Gypsies
and their first attempt at boarding down sand dunes
August 9, 2013

It's a Beautiful Day

Although the two RV Gypsies were told that sand boarding should be done barefoot, the sand was just too hot to be barefoot, so they managed to get the board secured with their shoes on. This is both of their first attempts at sand boarding.

Karen Duquette managed to stand up on the board and tried to slide down one of the smaller sand dunes.

Now Lee Duquette tried. But he went right into a miniature bush and Karen laughed so hard she couldn't stop laughing and didn't get that photo.

So now the two RV Gypsies made a decision to sit on the board instead of standing up. Lee had to wax the board after each run.

Karen Duquette decided it was time to move to a bigger hill. But Lee did not want to, so he took movies, not photos.

Look at the people in the two photos below, then look at the above panorama to get an idea of how high up the sand dunes they have climbed. Amazing!
