And so we come to the end of the Alphabet Photography Project. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed choosing some of my favourite photos to fit each letter of the alphabet. In the first instance, I thought Z would be pretty difficult however after the hair raising weekend we had at GoApe, Z could be for no other word!
Z is for… Zip Wire
For Ethan’s birthday, he chose to go to Go Ape for his birthday present, a Treetop Adventure Trail. He went up with his Daddy and I was more than happy to stay on the ground, taking the photos. On the course there are a few zip wires but this one is the longest. I love how you can see the full length of the zip line in this photo. Perhaps, I shouldn’t mention that Luke’s clip attaching him to the zip wire broke during this run in the photo! It was his safety harness that fortunately kept him attached! It didn’t seem to phase him, but my heart was in my mouth!
On one of the zip wires, the instructor gave Harley and Connor a speedometer to capture the speed that Luke and Ethan travelled down the zip wire. Ethan won with 17mph.
Ethan thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
If I’m totally honest, I thought I had got away with it, until Connor asked me to do the Junior Treetop Trail with him for his birthday, a couple of weeks later! I was absolutely petrified. Before I had children, I was so brave and adventurous, I was always the first one in the queue for the biggest roller coasters and fastest rides; now I’m truly a wimp!
But I did my step mother duties and kept to my word that I would indeed take Connor on the Junior course thinking that it would be much tamer than the one I had just watched the others do. All I can say is that at 8 years old, he was much braver than me. I completed it but my goodness, I was terrified the whole way through. It made it all worthwhile when Connor told me he was proud of me, isn’t it supposed to be the other way round?!
Thank you so much for following my alphabet photo journey. It’s hard to choose a favourite: J is for Joy, has to be up there and T is for tide has been my screensaver since I took the photo.
