skyrider


While at Eden, our friend Jim treated us to a Skyrider Adventure.
What a ride!
(The $3 charge per person was an amazing price by U.S. standards)
Here Amy suits up in a harness and helmet.



The Skyrider is a set of 200-meter long steel cables suspended roughly 20 meters in the air between two steel towers, on which you glide along suspended with a spectacular view of Davao City and the Davao Gulf.
This was the departure tower.



Amy and Michael went first - they were eager and ready to go!





They zipped all the way to the tower at the other side,
(can you see it?) where they climbed up again and zipped back.



Elise and Barbara were next.
(Mark missed out - he was back at the cabin reading!
Next time, Mark.)



Elise and Barbara take off from the tower.
My only complaint? It was too short. ;o)



After that ride the free ziplines seemed a little tame.



Next, Michael had his very first fishing experience ever.
He caught a Tilapia for dinner!

Oh, I love tilapia!!! When we had the missions dinner, we had a fish fry, and we had fried tilapia, all 60 pounds of them! Good job, Michael!!
