The last time I posted it was my birthday. That was almost a week ago, and I am still coming down off my birthday high. Literally.
Remember this place? Last time we went there only Bethany climbed. It looked like so much fun! Let me just say, heights are not my strong suit. But the harness is very securely anchored, and, well, Bethany made it look like such a piece of cake, that I found myself wanting all of us to try it together. That was my birthday request.
If you look closely, there are four levels. At the top middle, beyond the top of the photo, is the pinnacle, the gangplank. We gave it very little thought the last time we were there. Obviously. I didn't even take a picture of it. But this time was different...

Where in the world did she get the climbing gene? She was the only one who made it to the plank. Lee said his adrenaline was pumping and he was afraid if he went out there he might be sharing more of the experience than the people below would appreciate. Good call. As for me, when I heard she was going for it, I had to quit at the second level so I could go get the camera.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
Ben made the sacrifice just before I did so he could take a picture of me. Thanks bunches, Ben!
Meanwhile, safely back at home...
I'm so blessed!
Friend celebrations yet to come...
