Activity weekend

This weekend was a friends hen do. This involved Go Ape in the morning - for those of you unaware of this it's basically throwing yourself around an obstacle course in the treetops. Good fun with some slightly hairy moments given that you're 30-40 foot up most of the time! There's zip wires down from each section, something I'd not been on before but LOVED.
Then we had lunch and regained the use of our 'land legs' and moved on to the next section in Ashcombe Adventure Centre. First we did Archery followed by Clay Pigeon Shooting. Again I've never done either before but both were very enjoyable, my favourite being the shooting. The instructors there were top notch as well, I really want to go back for the quad biking.
After all this excitement it was back home for a quick change, don a pair of wings and a tiara and out for dinner then clubbing. You must forgive me for being somewhat knackered on the sunday! A top weekend all round. I was going to leave you with a video I took coming down one of the zipwires but Blogger seems to have other ideas. :-/ A couple of pics instead then; did I mention it was pretty high? :-D


  1. Wow Ruth, those tree-tops look scary. Quite the little dare-devil aren't you? I've done Archery and Shooting, great activities aren't they?

  2. They are, I'm quite hooked now on the shooting!
