Aerial Cableway Fun

Its always a big surprise to see a month coming to an end, when you don’t even know how it happened. Slow down year! I’m still trying to get to stuff!    We usually get our weekend fun on, but this aerial cableway has been on the cards for a while now.  Finally we put all our maybes aside and just did it.  It was extremely cloudy at our house, but the weather report said abundant sun for the cableway.  We put our trust in technology and off we went.  During the drive the clouds started disappearing the closer we got and bam. Abundant sun right in my face.

^^ Paying for our tickets….If you look really closely you can spot my hat in the reflection.

^^ It sure goes up, up, up.  I was kinda scared when we got out of the car.  I’m not that great with heights or putting my faith in a man made contraption.  You should see me on a plane!

^^ Everything you would ever want to know!

^^ It was reasonably empty when we paid for our tickets, but as soon as we got in the queue a whole bunch of school kids came from nowhere at all.  Must be hogwarts.

^^ We ended up sharing a cart with three 14 year old boys, so you know I put on my big girl pants and did not show any fear the entire way.  Carl and I must have made those poor boys real awkward.  Its a special gift, spreading awkwardness all around us.

^^ The top is filled with panoramic views and a kaleidoscope of colours.  Just look at that dam.  Don’t you just want to go dip your toe into it?  I do!

^^ Super windy, with a slight chance of hat getting blown off! I don’t know what I’m doing with my legs, lets just blame it on the wind.

^^ I carried my hat the rest of the way.

^^ They have a lot of eating option at the top.  We laughed at the mexican pizza, they plop on chillies and call it mexican.  We didn’t end up eating anything, we went home and made fresh spring rolls. Way more refreshing and yum!

^^ This restaurant had amazing views and absolutely no one in it.  Not even staff so we got to soak up these views with no one around.

^^ We got a cart all to ourselves on the way down.  My hat even got a seat.  Good hat.

^^ I took a lot of photos over my shoulder on the way down.

This was so much fun!

Anything fun you still want to do before the year is over?
