Thursday Challenge : SPORTS (Baseball, Soccer, Surfing, Hang Gliding, Sailing,…)

oh yes this reminds me of a couple of weeks ago when I went to ZIP WORLD which boasts of the longest ZIP line , The following is what they have on their website If you have not come across Zip World before – be ready for an experience of a lifetime! Zip World offers a unique range of adventures in the heart of Snowdonia.

This is about more than a Mile long Zip and one can reach speed up to 100 miles per hour.. The weather changed very quickly when we went , it was nice and sunny but then cloud came.

The Photographs have not come out good because we were all doing it and no one taking pics .. Got a couple of shots I hope they are good enough although I must say the experience was Worth it .. Although very expensive

Getting ready to have a go

… Reminds me of the favourite song

Country roads .. take me Home ..
To the place I belong …
I hear a voice in the morning how she calls me
The radio reminds me of my home far away
Drivin’ down the road I get the feelin’

That I should been home yesterday yesterday
TAKE ME HOME

Shopping experience from the previous article has made me say this and put on offer the buy one get one free offer 🙂 so here’s a Wordless Wednesday as I don’t have words to explain the beauty of nature and off course the Thursday Challenge : “BRIGHT COLORS” (Things that are brightly coloured…) .. I hope the colours in the pics are BRIGHT enough to make this theme now..

Something from my garden… its been raining a lot so haven’t had many flowers come out yet .. hopefully it will get warmer soon..
