Rock Climbing

I got home last night but was too tired to even turn my computer on, believe it or not.

Well... I went rock climbing for the first time ever and I got the proof right here:

On the way up:

Reaching the top:

The way down:


This was the best fun I had in a while!

Welcome back, Melly! You're much braver about heights than I am. :)

Welcome back - last time I went rock climbing was in the 6th grade. I made it about five feet...I was a scrawny kid.

rdl said...

glad you had fun and glad to see you back.

Thanks Deborah :)
I like doing "scary" stuff, but I can't do roller coasters. Go figure.

Cavan, it's time to try it again. Definitely and for sure. I loved it despite my arms hurting the next day (I used upper body strength - pulling myself up, rather than using my legs to push my body. Oh, well...).

Thanks rdl :) :)

Jean said...

Glad you had fun, and welcome back.

Benjamin Solah said...

It looks like you had fun. I've done it before, but never really got the hang of it.

Deborah said...

Now roller coasters I can do, which I find rather strange.

Trée said...

Woohoo, pictures of Melly! I've been waiting months. My new favorite post. :-)

Welcome back Melly. You've been missed.

Jennifer said...

Cool! Never been rock climbing before.

Glad to have you back.

Melly said...

Thanks Jean, Benjamin, Jennifer. It's so nice to be back to such a warm welcome :)

Deborah, for me it's a matter of control. I like being in control, so I don't mind doing things like climbing, rafting, scuba diving etc.. But in a rollercoaster I only have one option - sit back, and I can't stand that. Plus, it breaks my back and scares me to death! ;)

Trée, you've been seeing my pics each time you're here - all the pics in the banner are mine. Okay, okay, maybe too small :) Thanks, good to be back :) :)

The pictures look great. I am glad Houston was warm and welcoming for a Canadian in need of a little sun. I am expanding in reach and sent you an invite, if you are interested

Melly said...

Hey Lance. Thanks. Coming a lot from someone who posts great pics all the time :)
I haven't checked my gmail todya, but I'll do it tomorrow and look at that invite. Thanks :)

Melly - Be careful up there! Glad to have you back!

Paul Darcy said...

Wow!

That looks like fun.

I'd be getting a nose bleed and calling for mommy before I got to the top . . .

Did I just type that out loud?

:)

Pat Kirby said...

Looks fun. I used to rock climb. Now I'm afraid of heights. Now ladders are scary.

Melly said...

Thanks Fred and no worries, I was tied up very well ;)

Uhmmm... yeah, Paul, you did - LOL :)

Pat, isn't it amazing how we get scared of things as we age? I'm now scared of driving, or being driven (talk about worse backseat driver), but I don't have much choice...
