There has been a great deal of fun and laughter and playfulness to these challenges (a fact that will no doubt be raised in above mentioned court procedings). Yes, I would most likely not have done many of them without the ultimate goal of raising money and awareness for my library in Mexico. And yet, I am so pleased I have done them all. Running with my son Stephen has been such a treat. I sense a running partner for years to come (although he is quickly getting faster than me). Circus experience day led to me enrolling in a circus class, something I would never have dreamed I would do. And I am loving it, if finding it quite the physical challenge. And then there is the excuse to spend time with friends, in new places. And that brings me to challenge #10.
We expected rain. It is Wales, after all. Remembering our experience in Scafell Pike, I bought brand new, top of the range waterproofs (waterproofs!!!!, how tragic), and braced ourselves for another slog through the elements. How wrong we were. It was sunny and warm and glorious. And the views.....I was afraid my camera wouldn't be able to catch the way the water on the lake glistened like all those proverbial diamonds....but it did. Look at that!
|what incredible landscape|
|yes,we scaled those peaks|
And I learned that dinosaurs did indeed roam these parts, but no prehistoric human artifacts have been found. Don't know why I find either so interesting, but I do. I do, I do. And of course there was laughter. A lot of laughter. Lots and lots and lots. Thanks dear friends for another fantastic weekend, and some great exercise too.
