With the internet being down all weekend, you have missed out on my blogging about some truly epic napping, but after a very restful couple of days I did actually do something on Monday. It being the 4th of July I had the day off, and I woke up with the urge to do something new and exciting, like go to the climbing tower in town, and climb to the top of it.
So I did.
I got quite close to the top of the straight wall when a grasshopper-type insect jumped out of the hand-hold I was reaching for and landed on my face. I had no idea that a jumping insect without wings could get so high, so frankly it freaked me out a bit and I decided to come down. Well, it was a combination of the insect, not being able to work where next to put my hands or feet, and this being my third climb of the day which meant my arms were getting tired; all of which which left me feeling suddenly not very confident up there. So I came down before I got too over-whelmed, but I fully intend to go back and get to the top next time!
All in all it was an action packed day, and that was well before the major thunderstorm or any of the various fireworks displays.
