Spiraling In Perfect Control…

Sitting in a cabin that goes around a big wheel might be one thing, but bungy jumping is quite another level of adventure.Even if I were fit and had the use of both legs, bungy jumping is definitely on my ” No Way Ever!” list.
Suddenly Kiwi Daughter announced that she might like to do this one day. Not here in the Netherlands but in New Zealand, on some future visit.This is a huge change of tune, whenever we used to go past the bridge close the Hanmer springs where it’s possible to go bungy jumping, she always said she would never ever consider it.Mind you, she was my eleven year old Kiwi daughter back then, and my sixteen year old Kiwi Daughter of today has obviously grown in daring as well as in years.

It remains to be seen if this bravado makes the transition from talk into action. If I report a sudden thatch of grey hair it may well be because my daughter is standing with bungy cords around her feet on a little platform above a river, about to jump. I was more than content to look at the building from the big wheel and the Scheveningen pier, and just enjoy the architectural beauty of the way the staircase on the outside of the building spirals around the tower.
