Cross it off the list

Way back in March, I made mention of starting a life list, things I'd like to do before I die. This month I got to cross a few things off. Well, one thing.....I didn't know I had the others on there but I had the opportunity to try something new and did it.

The first was going on a whale watch. That one was on that list. We did this in Plymouth, MA and it was so cool. I took over 100 pics trying to capture something decent. I got a few, here's one:

The next day we went to an ecotarium (museum of science and nature). They have a tree canopy where you can walk through the treetops and then ride a zip line back to the ground. It's about 40-45 feet up. No problem, I thought. That's not that high. Until you get up there. My heart starting racing a bit before I sat in the chair and swung my feet out. But I made it through and it was fun. My brother was in charge of my camera when I was up there.

My aunt started kayaking last November so she wanted to bring my mom out for a ride. We ended up all taking turns so I got to go too instead of just watching from the dock. It took me a bit to get the hang of it and I almost got caught up in the lilly pads before I got going. This time my daughter was in charge of getting pics of me.

Skowt was pretty much a natural in the kayak. Guess what's she's been asking for ever since!

Good for you! That is quite something, knocking things off your list. Now if I could just find mine...
