Highwire at Hobbledown

A couple of days ago I went to Hobbledown with my cousins.  There is a highwire course where you have to go on small boards and across wobbly bridges very high up.  I haven’t done anything like it before because I was too worried about falling or the rope snapping.  My cousin, Lucy, had been on it before so I knew she’d look after me.  For the first go she went first to show me what to do and on each platform she waited for me to get across.  I liked it a lot so we went on it 6 times in a row before lunch!

While we were doing the course the little ones, because they were too short, were bouncing on the bouncy pillows!  They both cheered us on.

After lunch Mummy and Auntie Helen went on it and they were SO SCARED!  They were very funny and kept hugging the posts so they didn’t fall off.  The course goes past the play equipment and there is window near the highwire ropes.  When we went past Rhiannon and Ben were sitting in there saying hello to us through the mesh!

I hope we can go again one day.
