Z Best for Last

It is time for the very last letter of the alphabet for Martha's A-Z Challenge. And I couldn't wait to post this!

A few months ago, we went to Jamaica and did a very daring, and exciting thing...a Zip Line!

We're not talking about the kind at a company picnic...we're talking about the real deal. We're talking being VERY high up....we're talking about mingling with the tree tops....speeding over rivers. It took a bit of hiking, and we got to do about 8 or 9 zip lines, but on this particular one, I bravely (stupidly?) brought my camera along. That left me with only one hand to hang on.

I warn you. You may want to turn your volume down...perhaps turn it off completely. Oh, and if there are any kids around, I do utter a curse word in there too.

Anyway, I give to you....my final letter....Z, for Zip line: (Don't say I didn't warn you!)

That is excellent! But why were you yelling about a boat? Your on a zip line, why are you screaming SHIP? I don't get it, was a boat supposed to meet you or something? ;)

Martha said...

OMG!!! I can't believe you did that! You are way more daring than I am. It sure looks like fun - weeee! :-)

Michelle said...

Holy shitake mushrooms!! Please forgive me for laughing.. It's a nervous habit! You are one heck of a brave woman. What a fantastic experience and the fact that you recorded it makes it even better.

You may be able to get me to sing, but THAT, my friend, is out of the question!

Love, bubbles and chocolate,

me

Lippy said...

YOWWIE! All I could think of hearing your scream was, how much higher-pitched my scream would have been up there. You are a braver person than me. I'll stick to the Lip-Line (only goes 4 feet off the ground.)

Great video!

That was great!! It was just like being along for the ride. I don't have nerve enough to do stuff like this, but love it when others do. Blessings, Penny
