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! ┬á┬á We usually get our weekend fun on, but this aerial cableway has been on the cards for a while now. ┬áFinally we put all our maybes aside and just did it. ┬áIt was extremely cloudy at our house, but the weather report said abundant sun for the cableway. ┬áWe put our trust in technology and off we went. ┬áDuring 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. ┬áI was kinda scared when we got out of the car. ┬áI’m not that great with heights or putting my faith in a man made contraption. ┬áYou should see me on a plane!

^^ 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. ┬áJust look at that dam. ┬áDon’t you just want to go dip your toe into it? ┬áI 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. ┬áWe laughed at the mexican pizza, they plop on chillies and call it mexican. ┬áWe 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?
