High Coo – August 2 – Zip a dee doo dah Day

This is me, two days ago. Wheeeee

Sometimes, you just have to take a break, take a risk, and go on an adventure.

Visiting my daughter and her family, we were fortunate to get a last-minute reservation for ziplining in Redwood country. We went on the Tree Tops Tour: 250 feet above the forest floor and up to 40 mph. Seven zip lines, two sky bridges and a 45-foot final rappel. Yeah, that’s what I’m talking about!

Here’s today’s haiku: Zip a dee doo dah Day

Zip fear – unzip your

freedom – go soaring through the

Sonoma Redwoods

You can be sure; I was very mindful regarding every instruction offered and every takeoff and reentry.
