Ugly Betty rides again. On fresh water.
It was Darren's first time on the Betty, although he'd seen her before at the
party a couple weeks ago. In the second shot, where he's looking up in awe,
you can see me reflected in his sunglasses. You might need some image
enhancement software, though.
We put in by the airport. That's mostly a jetski ramp, but we were able to
squeeze in. There were lots of low bridges. You can see the first bridge
we came to. It was too low for the Betty, so we turned off toward the
Palm Beach canal. There were a couple skis coming up behind us.
We came to another bridge. This is Congress, and it's pretty high, so we had
no trouble getting under. I don't know what the rusty trombone thing is. And
the skis were back behind us, jumping the wake.
The next bridge was pretty low. We had to taunt Rob a lot to get him to go
under it, but we made it. There was at least a foot or two of clearance.
He wouldn't do the next bridge, at Military. We turned around there.
The Palm Beach canal runs by the airport, so we could see the tower from the
canal on the way back. After we got back to the lake by the ramp, all the
skis had fun jumping the wake.
We had a little trouble getting Betty back on the trailer and out of the water,
but we got 'er done.
