we shall not cease from exploration
I'd always wanted to go to this cool big rock down by the river, and was very happy to finally do some exploring with a friend. There's even a little tunnel, into which I'd also like to venture. But I think that's where the river turns into a ditch and gets a little too dirty for casual exploring, haha! But the great rock was worth a visit, and I'd say it'd be a pretty place for a picnic. You would not think that it's right next to the road and if I was still living in my hometown, this'd probably be one of the places where I'd go to just be by myself and think. (When I was younger, I think it used to be a teenage drinking place, but I haven't seen anyone there in forever, so maybe those crazy kids have found another place..) I don't think the scale of the rock really comes across, but the fall to the river is reasonably sizable. I don't think I've ever said this, but I'm not too comfortable with heights, even so I do really like this place. And I am not in any way acrophobic (although I used to say I was back in primary school because I thought it made me more interesting:')), I'm just not comfortable with heights. At the same time I love the little tickle of fear I feel when high up and like going to places like that. Is that too contradictory and strange, haha? You can actually see in the photo of my feet that I will go near the edge, but not quite as far as I could. I do love a bit of exploring!
