Bedecked in trainers we set off to do the course. I had no qualms about it. After all I'm a graduate of the Go Ape course in Haldon Forest. But let's cut to the chase. I'll 'fess up to wimping out early on around the circuit. Sheer terror set in from the beginning of the course, not an emotion I'm seeking on my holidays. My legs shook and I hyperventilated as I had to negotiate my way between metal things in the rocks which always seemed just a bit too far to take a step easily. I feared for my knee which has the ACL repair. It doesn't get insured when I go on holiday anymore.
At the start of this 'monkey bridge' I turned and shot back to one of the exits. I basked in the sun at the top of one of the fort's turrets whilst Louis went round the course with ease. There was part that he wasn't supposed to do as he's under 16 but he snuck around it. I thought he would. I contented myself to goes on the two zip wires that run from the mainland to the island. That was enough bravery for me for one day!
