Climbing Mt Beerburrum
Yesterday I was mad enough to say “Yes, lets climb Mt Beerburrum”!!! Its not a big climb by any means, but gee is it steep….
The walk goes fairly quickly, with a few “drink stops” along the way. Actually its the boys that keep me going…I would stop to take photos but the boys were keen to reach the top. I must say that the view at the top is worth the STEEP walk……
When we got to the tower, it was very windy, so for my piece of mind (and the boys safety) I asked them to sit down. They thought it was the perfect time for Fruit Break
The view is stunning…you are able to walk around the whole tower looking out over Glasshouse Mountains, to further out and even out to the ocean. Its like a dream……
Going back down was so much easier…..we ran most of the way down. I sure felt my muscles screaming this morning, letting me know that they had been worked out.
The walk is hard, short but steep. The view on top – takes your breath away. If you are ever near Mt Beerburrum in Queensland – stop on by and get your walking shoes on.
We actually meet an American couple that were climbing the mountain – well the Husband was climbing with his mate from Brisbane, while the wife was at the bottom waiting for him to get back down. The American man was kind enough to let the boys have a look through his “goggles” (as Kyle calls them) – his binoculars. They must have cost a few pennies because when the boys held it up to their eyes they all stepped back……the view from the mans binoculars brought it all so close the boys thought the trees were going to hit them!!! Wished I thought to take a photo of their faces, priceless…..
So after walking up Mt Beerburrum yesterday, I thought I would take the younger two Woody Boys for a bike ride today.
I walked while they rode to the local football field. Which is a fair distance from our house…Yep – I am sure pushing my body limits this weekend. I had a theory behind all my madness, To Wear the boys out.
It WORKED!!! They were all in bed by 7.15pm tonight and asleep by 7.30pm – how will I pull up tomorrow? Well that is another story….
How was your weekend spent?
