Tasmania – Day 8

Day 8 and it’s Boxing Day today. We’ve headed to the Gorge again this afternoon for a cool down swim, so I thought I’d brave the water today and swim up the Gorge with my Sister and all the kids.

Can I just say that the water was cold (if you had of been there in person you’d would have gotten the unedited version of that statement!)

The kids wanted me to see the hole that they’d been jumping in to on Christmas Eve, and Little Man was really keen for me to have a go… so I did.

Wondering whether I am brave enough to attempt this.

If I sit here long enough I wonder if they will let me chicken out?

I did it!

Yes, I really did.  And I didn’t like it at all.  The jump was accompanied by an incredibly claustrophobic feeling and an intense desire to get the hell out of there, which I promptly did!  Out is through an underwater arch, which prompted a bit more panic from me.

Needless to say I only jumped once.  The kids all jumped a couple of times and my Sister absolutely loved it and jumped three times – crazy woman 🙂

We’re on the road again tomorrow, off to have a look along the North-West and West coasts.  More Tasmania to see.
