So earlier this week I visited Reynolds Plantation on Lake Oconee, Georgia. And it was gorgeous, utterly and completely gorgeous, and the food was incredible and there were all sorts of superswell activities to do on and around the water, like hiking and kayaking. And water skiing, too, which although clearly a sport invented by smug showoffs with alarming lower arm strength and the balance of circus acrobats to make the rest of us regular humans feel inferior, is also oddly addictive even if you face plant in the water roughly 47 times in a row going 100 miles an hour and never even get entirely vertical.
But perhaps even more fun than water skiing on Lake Oconee is tubing. Because tubing requires no skill other than the ability to hold on to an inflated piece of rubber as it’s dragged behind a souped-up speedboat driven by a guy named Caleb who looks and sounds exactly like a young Matthew McConaughey only maybe a bit cuter. Which, as you can see below, is not a skill in which I exactly excelled. Though thanks to Caleb’s preternaturally perfect dimples, I found myself not entirely caring. Thanks, Caleb!
