As I looked out at the gorgeous light blue Caribbean Sea I saw a large white boat in the distance with a rope connected to a parachute sailing over it with multiple people in the boat. My family and I were standing on the pure white Dominican Republic sand waiting for our turn to take the dinghy out and meet the parasail boat for our first experience parasailing ever.
