BJ (who gets to go everywhere with his school) is the only one of us who has been up to the top in... I don't know how long...and then there is Cam who has never been at all. Cam asks every time we drive into the city "What are those 3 towers for?" and "What's up there?" . So we decided to make a quick detour on the way home last Monday after a day of shopping (whole other story there!) and have a look.
Now, for those of you that live in Adelaide, you will remember that it wasn't such a pleasant day last Monday and let me tell you it wasn't really that crash hot up on top....couldn't see ANYTHING...it was just so foggy that we couldn't see 2 feet in front of us and we had a very disappointed little boy on our hands so we promised we would take him back up later on in the week.
So, back we went on Wednesday when the weather was going to cooperate.....OMG never again. Please let me explain. The view was beautiful, fantastic and well worth the effort of seeing. But then you have the bush walks.......and I will say again OMG.
My wonderful, strong and adventurous husband said to me "Look hon, a walking track, it's cold why don't you wait in the car and I will take the boy's for a quick walk" and then me, not wanting to be left out and who goes walking almost everyday said "No that's ok, I'll come with, I might get some good shots with the camera" (famous last words) thinking nothing about the track itself......They should have warning signs I am telling you! It was all good going down but coming back up!!!!!.....I though I was at least a little bit fit, but I tell you it was really tough. So take this as a warning if you are going to do the bush walks on Mt Lofty wear sneakers and comfy clothes and be prepared for the workout of you life!
I can hear you now...Come on, Don, don't exaggerate, but if you don't believe me go see for yourself!
