This photo was taken when I was first learing to waterski. I was using Cypress Gardens trainers, as you can see from the way the rope is tied to the skis. I think I used these only once or twice, and they have been sitting in the boathouse ever since. Our good friend and annual Penwood guest for many years, Jeff Watson, took this picture (I think). He is an excellent photographer and gives us a photograph every year, which hang in Penwood and Nina's Camp.
