After everyone had enjoyed their picnic's we decided to hit the trail. I think I was partly brave and really stupid. We headed to the waterfall to start our hike. Here was me all eager and taking off like there was no tomorrow. First mistake!! I should have taken it slow. We were barely at the top of the falls and the nausea set in - it was most certainley time to take a breather but here was Josh - demanding we carry on. LOL I caught my breath and prayed to the heavens above that I wouldn't throw up, although part me thought that losing lunch was not entirely a bad idea (probably ate more than I should have, hmmmm, definitely more than I should have). We got to the top of the falls and it was beautiful, luckily the trail flattened out a bit and I could gather myself together. Needless to say that by now I had wanted to turn back a good couple of times - thinking I couldn't do it. Ant was good - he never insisted either way but followed my lead. Off we were again. The trail continued up and up - I guess this was the Roodekrans Ridge. I found a few good rocks to sit on along that trail. When we finally got to the top it really felt good!! I had done it. Now there was the matter of getting back down. Although not back-breaking, my legs took strain and my right ankle decided to kick up a protest but I took it in my stride. Finally back on even ground my legs were clearly not talking to me but I felt good. Now all I want to do is go back and do other walks as well as this one. A good way to get fit, don't you think.
That was my Sunday!!
