I spent a great afternoon at the Children's Fresh Air Farm recently. Owned and run by my church, Independent Presbyterian Church, it has been the site of the BELL ( Building Educated Leaders for Life )program this summer. I got wind that the campers would be using the zipline the next day so I poked around till I found the site. Not an adventurous person by nature, I really didn't give the logisitics a lot of thought. I found the tower, and they told me to come on up! They said to go around and use the bridge, it was easier. (That should have been my first clue) OK, I had to cross this long and swaying bridge to get to the tower and then........... I had to climb this tiny ladder up to the top, or almost the top, of the tower. You don't even want to know what I wanted to scream. Deep breath........I made it. I'm up there and tickled to photograph some of the leaders giving it a test run. I can't tell you how they tried to persuade me to do it, but I just couldn't. I was too worried about having to go back down that ladder and across that bridge. Oh the things I do for a few good photos. Been there, done that , won't be going again. And I hear that the next day those 8 year olds had a ball!
See side photo for proof I actually got that far!
Lauren was far braver than I!
