Joselyn Mendoza was all smiles as she was strapped into a “cage” fitted to a set of waterskis.
The 7-year-old was fitted and strapped into a seat and harness attached to a wide set of skis on the sandy beach at the Pointes West Army Resort.
It was the first time she had ever gone waterskiing, and she was nervous but excited.
A few minutes later, Joselyn was skimming along the surface of Lake Thurmond behind a yellow motorboat.
“I can’t swim. That’s why I have this,” she said, pointing to her life vest.
