Natalie liked boats

Natalie Wood liked boats, and loved boating. The Splendour was a perfect haven for social get-aways for her. As she once explained in an interview, she liked being "near the water, and around the water, but just not IN the water."  Here she is with RJ, appearing to be getting ready for a jetski ride. I asked Dennis if he ever saw Natalie on a jetski. He laughed and said, "Yes, on deck, but NEVER in the ocean."  Actually, it's a shame that Natalie did not become more familiar with being in the ocean...some experience might have made the difference in  her survival chances come daylight Nov. 29, 1981. Then again, how could she ever have imagined she would end up in the ocean in the middle of the night after an argument she felt justified in dealing with immediately?

Note: I am not sure when or where these photos were taken.
