Emma Goes Ape

Having passed the minimum age limit, Emma was keen to try out the adult Go Ape at Itchen Valley Country Park. There was a certain amount of expectation setting that had to be done before we left home as she needed shoes on to be taller than the limit of 140cm but they seem fine with that when we arrived at check-in. Quite apart from any qualms over heights, my back gave out last Monday, and so the job of trailing Emma round fell to Christine, with Duncan and myself watching from ground-level.

Emma had a big cheery smile on her face the whole way round although Christine says she was a bit nervous at times. (I think she meant Emma, not herself.) It certainly didn’t hold her up though as she flew along many of obstacles. Some of the attachments were a bit of a stretch for her so she certainly needed to have Christine there to help her clip on. Christine didn’t give her any chance to forget about clipping on either! Emma’s certainly keen to return so perhaps my back pain will have to become a recurring problem…
