ABC WEDNESDAY LETTER " Z "


Its ABC Wednesday again. " Z " is for ZIP -LINE. This is one of our group in Nicaragua getting his thrills on a zip -line "ride". There were three lines to get from the top of the mountain, across the lake and down to ground level. The guys thought it was an awesome thing to do.....Me? I watched. Heights and me don't get along too well.
Don't forget to enlarge it.

It looks like fun, but the same with me, also a wimp. I am too high stood on a chair.
I did go up in a hot air balloon one time and after a few minutes, it wasn't too scary.

I reckon if man was meant to fly we would have wings. I like to have my feet on the ground too. Nice photo.

Hilary said...

Ack! I have noodle legs just looking at it. Great shot though.. and good idea for a Z.

John Roberts said...

For me, this would be like using a parachute: only if there was no other way out!

I did a zip line once. It looked just like that and it was scary as hell to jump off. Then it got fun.

Andrew said...

That looks like a thrill for sure

RuneE said...

That was a new one to me. I would have stayed on the ground too.

hey Sue! Thanks for the comment on my blog. About the sun catchers, the flowers on those are my images. I look pictures of the pressed flowers and they are on the glass...

CRAZY and innovative! :)

Thanks again for the encouragement!

Nice shot.

barkfoot said...

You shouldn't be scared of heights...it's the ground that kills you!

Pat said...

Oh, my goodness! I'm sorry but you wouldn't find me there. So good to see though and you sure captured it well.

I haven't been by your blog in a while because of my schedule. I can see that I have really missed a lot. Lots of quality, eye-enticing photos.

Not "the way I want to go!" The sky is a beautiful blue.

I've never been on a zip-line but this one definitely looks scary. No need to pay to be scared.

"Me? I watched." I would've too, covering my eyes half of the time. Gee, I just couldn't do something like that. My stomach wouldn't allow it. But I do love the photo.

How have you been? I hope all is well. :)

Cheers!

imac said...

Neva said...

I thought of Zip line but had no pictures. Not something I would do because I don't do the height thing either.Great "Z"!!!

Kekiinani said...

Wow Wee this looks like fun!!! :) :) Cool shot :)

NYCindividual said...

A unique z! Looks like quite a ride! I'm not sure I'd be able to do that, but what a great thing to take photos of!

My kind of recreation... But someone won't let me... And I probably have an unfavorable weight-to-upper-arm-strength balance...
