There wasn't much else to see so we headed out to the Wairere Falls to go for a hike.
Yes, I said Hike. I am not much of the athletic type. At all. I have been trying more lately, but I still find it a real struggle and when I have to stop several times in a hike to sit down because I'm so winded... it's not very encouraging and I prefer to give up! I didn't though and eventually Dahvede and I got to the look out to see this:
Maybe someday we'll venture the rest of the way up! We only made it to the lookout. The top is another 45 minute hike (yes... 45 minutes is a huge deal to me!)
Althought we tried (only once, but give me a break!) to get pictures of the two of us, they didn't come out so awesome, but I liked this one I took of our feet. This was at the top of the lookout. It was a lot of fun to challenge each other (ok, so I mostly needed that), and to conquer it together. :)
And this picture? This is just a shot I got along the way. When I got it home and onto my computer I was surprised at how much I liked the way it came out. I did however have to show it to Susie before I dared put it up. She knows far more about these things than I do :) Bless her heart.
Ok, enough out of me for the night. I'm off to finish my Galley-er duties! I'm excited... can't you tell?
At least I don't have to make the milk. But that's a post for tomorrow.
