Don’t Go Chasin’ Waterfalls…

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
– Mark Twain

Hold on a second there, Mark.

It was this quote, or rather – mentality, with which I hopped into this beautiful lagoon at the base of an enormous waterfall in my clothes. I wasn’t alone – my friends Mar, Ryan and Becca jumped in right behind me. We swam, splashed and had a great time until we realized, hmm, the only one in our group who hadn’t hopped in was our friend, Dr. Peter. 

“Doc, what’s the deal?”

As we made the hike back to the rover, dripping wet, Peter enlightened us on the nasty things that live in waterfalls here. He claims he tried to warn us but that we ignored him, pshhhhh! As if.

Ok, ya. Maybe we did. 

But fear not, we escaped unscathed and we are all 100% a-okay. Fewf.

The moral of this story is that you really should never take quotes from literary greats too seriously. Because even though you think yourself a superfun adventurous person that catches trade winds in your sails, you still look like dinner to a leech.

 But if you absolutely must

at least get a good photo out of the  deal.
