You don't see me say I was too scared to do something very often, but the other day, that's exactly what I did. I chickened out, but before you judge, look at what Josh wanted me to do.
See that rock? Josh wanted to climb it.
We got half way up, and then I got hit with scaredy pants.
Do you see the degree of rock climbing needed without climbing gear?
I am sorry, but any "hike" I go on and need a helmet, and do not have any rock climbing gear.... I am out.
The view from the chicken seat, wasn't bad....Josh's view was better though.
After we finished and Josh summited Mt. Tibrogargan at the Glasshouse Mountains, Josh was ready to try Mt. Beerwah. I attempted it....
Do you see the sheer scale of this climb.....I was about half way up to the girls seated in the picture. I was laying on the rock, shimming my way up the cliff. Next thing I knew someone then screamed, "ROCK." I laid flat while still looking up. The next thing I saw was a pebble hitting right in-front of me and jumping over my body.....Yeah, scaredy pants again.
Don't worry, Josh was man enough for all and climbed up. Mind you, this is an open "track" and people do it all the time.
I settled for just looking at sights and talked Josh into going to do something I could succeed at.....Island Time!!!
We drove an hour down the road and jumped on the $8.00 return trip ferry to Coochie Island.
We ended up walking around the entire island and just enjoying the beach. Now, I can tell you that Coochie is not exactly the best island around, or even the best beach, but when the return trip is so cheap, why not. As with any beach it has its own beauty and wonderful beaches, but the day we went the water was a bit choppy.
We had fun just looking for fun shells and enjoying one of our last weekends here before everything gets crazy.
Tell me about a time you have chickened out.
