On board the Norwegian Breakaway
there is this little ropes course...
On the very top of the ship~
I did it with Dave, Rick and Roxi ~
I faced my FEAR of HEIGHTS!
Everyone kept saying...
"You can't fall~"
Falling wasn't what scared me... it was just being up that high in the air!
Dave was behind me the first time and said my legs were just shaking!!
There is this little thing called a PLANK.
You can walk the PLANK...
right out over the water~
See this guy...
I was so FREAKING SCARED that I
DID NOT walk the PLANK that first day I did the course.
Afterwards, I was so angry at myself...
thinking if I could do all the ropes, surely I
could walk the PLANK~
SO I WENT UP THERE A SECOND TIME!
Dave stayed down below with my camera and telephoto lens to capture
my sheer terror~
You had to choose ways to get to the PLANK!
Yea... that's me holding others up while I panic!
Roxi was my cheerleader... telling me to
"STOP CRYING... YOUR FINE!"
Not really, she encouraged me to keep going~
telling me I was doing so great!
Good job with the camera Dave!
Rick was running all over the course!
Slow and steady...
Roxi was a pro too!
Look how I "edited" out the tether rope!
Roxi IS walking the PLANK!
Here I am.
Here I go.
I DID IT...
I AM DONE...
I AM GOING BACK IN!
HANG ON TO THE POLE FOR DEAR LIFE!
You end it all with a zip line ride over the pool area~
You have to start off running...
One more tricky rope to get through...
What are they laughing about, I wonder?
I am proud of ME!
(even if I only took 2 steps out on that darn thing!)
