The Attempted Climb of a 50-year old woman...on TOP of a cruise ship.

DON'T try this at home...O.K these are in the wrong order, but you get the idea!!! (Hey--I got halfway up the damn wall, after TWO trys!). Not to worry, since we were on a cruise with Norwegian Cruise Lines, I was able to 'nurse my wounds' later with a lively round of Bingo (didn't win, but got a randy hot pink shirt that read: "Bingo-licious!", a fantastic 5-course Italian dinner with my man and kids dressed 'to the nines', and a wild juggling show called "Sharkbait"! When you are 50, it's amazing just how the  simple pleasures are  so wonderful...especially the ones you don't have to think about. I'm now ready to 'create'...(this is a LOT harder than it looks, my man made it to the top...I now have a major new respect for rock climbers).

 A big 'thank you ' to my daughter for taking these pics...she opted OUT of the climb attempt, but my son and my man gave it their best shot.


    You go, Woman! I've not tried the wall climbing, having a gynormous fear of heights, but I have done white water rafting and LOVED that! Doesn't it feel good just to give it a go? WOOT WOOT! for you!

  2. Good for you trying it out! Living with a genuine rock & mountain/glacier climber, I did try rock climbing a few times, managed up & down a 30' rock which was terrifying but exhilarating -- probably 20 years ago with DH! I remember the key he used to say was to focus, focus, focus...
    Sounds like a great trip!

  3. I just HAD to try this, so that when we see the climbing wall on Norwegian Cruise commercials, I can say, "I did that!!". Thanks for your comments.

  4. Well done! You look like a pro up there! And your 5-course dinner sounds like a great reward for all your hard work!
