Spectator Sports

one of the things about becoming physical disabled is that you learn to adjust to being a bit more of a spectator in life than you probably were once upon a time. There are still lots of things you can do albeit a little differently, but over recent years I have discovered that my extra free time gave me the chance to become a much better spectator of many activities. I’ve always loved watching tennis and back in the motherland I could actually score a mean game of cricket 😉
Nowadays I have learned to follow baseball and US football (oh what a killer that final kick was for the Cougs last night!!) but since moving to West Seattle I get to see divers nearly every time I roll down to Alki Beach or the Water Taxi and thanks to videos like this ~ Video: Seen off West Seattle shores, ‘Beneath a Dark Sea’. I actually get to see what the local octopi are up to! Still diving but in dramatically different environs I have been following one of Chelsea’s good high school friends as she and her fiancé dive ‘The Best of SE Asia’ and he photographs and videos their adventure – check it out ~


About girlonahandcycle

Natural Brit/Naturalized American wife, mom, grandma and all around old broad still happily ignoring my MS (since 1985 - ha!). Every time it slows me down I find a way to speed back up which explains my very cool Tilite wheelchair and Top End handcycle ..........also my ripped arms ; ) Don't get back to the homeland or to other cool places quite as easily or often as I'd like anymore so theoretically my rambling here keeps me a little more connected to far away friends and family.
