OMG I did it everyone!! I did it!!!
Can you tell that I am excited because I feel so exhilerated and happy that I conquered another thing in 2006.
Hubby said I just wanted to make it 8 things I achieved in 2006 and so it was an even number cheeky bugger.
Photos will be coming as we asked for our photos to be put on disk and paid money for it and when we got home the lady had put the wrong peoples photos on our disk grrrr so we phoned and she is sending another one out.
The women in one room and the men in the other and it was soooo funny putting them on. I did mine with ease as I used plastic bags on my feet to get them in as they slip much better but no one else wanted to try and had a hard time getting them on. Annabelle and I were helping my MIL to get hers on and we laughed so much that the people outside we laughing at us laughing... I had sore sides for the wet suit being tight on me and from laughing... it was a hoot.
We got a photo taken of us outside the changing rooms before taking off and I REALLY felt like a Beach Whale as all the rolls were showing he he he. I couldn't stop laughing (I think it was a nervous thing). The first guide had a wonderful smile and warm heart he was great. We got in the van and headed towards the caves and up and around on a gravel road scaring the living daylights out of me and when we hopped out there was a huge man (I mean he was really big and bigger than me) and he greeted us and he was the other guide... OMG I was sooo happy you wouldn't believe to see him as I didn't feel so bad after all after that and he stayed with hubby and I and hubby's mum the whole time and made us feel so good as he had a way about him that reassured.
I am scared of heights so the steps and then rocks that we had to climb to get down were scaring me as I had boots on that were twice the size of my feet and couldn't get a good grip but the big guide had hold of my wet suit so I wouldn't fall. We got in to the mud and water and saw glow worms and it was sooo peaceful.
Then we head down and went to the water fall where we had to turn our backs on the water fall and have the inner tubes on our backsides and fall backwards down to the bottom OMG did they not realise that I was a wuss??? how was I going to cope with this but then this lady freaked out!!! I MEAN FREAKED OUT and then I realised I could do this and it wasn't that big of a deal and I had to just do it and so I spoke to her and said I am scared too but we can do this and the big guy was sooo calming and held her and said to her "look at me you can do this and keep looking at my face" and he calmed her down.
Wow falling backwards was scary and my tummy was churning but I did it and couldn't believe that I could do it.
After that we were all hooked up like trains where we were in our inner tubes and our feet out front with the person in front holding our feet and had to turn off our head lamps and were guided through like a snake like river and we looked up and watched the beautiful glow worms as we travelled down the river.
To get out there was 105 steps OMG with a wet wetsuit and water in our gum boots it was hard as but it was beautiful.
So as I said before I will upload the photos of us when we get them this week.
Love ya all
