The caption says it all! “The grace and beauty of ballet can only be enhanced when performed on water skis as these good looking Cypress Gardens water skiers, Jerry Welch and Gail Van Gundy demonstrate.” #waterskiing #showskiing #waterskidoubles #traditionaldoubles #showskilife #lifeonthewater #classicphotography #loveblackandwhite #cypressgardens (at Cypress Gardens, Florida)
