satisfaction. Today we did the High Ropes which consisted mainly of the rock climbing, abseiling, the balance beam and trapeze.. For me it was a battle with my mind  as fear took over. I have a fear of heights due to a fall..however thankfully with breathing, self talk, psychology, patience and kindness of the group and our instructor (Dickie) I have finished the day feeling wahoo I have overcome something in my confidence and I intend to achieve more in the High Ropes


Leap of faith

Enough about me… some highlights of the day were how much everyone encouraged each other.

The strange sounds coming out of people as they jumped or let go.
