The Daring Continues…

This is my last post about the tree climbing adventure orienteering course our kids and their guest did last summer in our German Landal Wirfttal holiday park.  Rens, our Dutch instructor who we already knew from doing archery and pistol shooting earlier in the week, let us keep our options open because he said we really needed to see the tree climbing course first before adding Little Mr and his guest to our final activity bill for the day (they were still fully kitted out with all the safety equipment from abseiling).

As it turned out both of them stayed firmly on the ground for most of the time we were here, they were simply not tall enough to get past the bigger gaps between obstacles, which is exactly the problem that Rens predicted. They did however plead and beg to be allowed to do the flying fox (zip wire) and so after a little needed help to get up to the required platform, they whistled down the incline into the waiting hands of one of the other helping parents below.

As usual some of my photographs have been edited for family (and guest) privacy reasons. These activities made their day, all three kids have overcome fears to do something new and we are really proud of them.
