Look, it was so tempting, that I had to try and get on top of it. It was a struggle, as it is bigger than you think, having got there, I was scratching my head on how to get down. I am just thankful my hip bones are strong, as I jumped the last metre, and landed with such a thud that I was feeling the shock waves for ages 😱

Well this personifies the saying once you are at the TOP there is only
to go but down but of course the view looks like the struggle was worth it

Lol, Well done Peter. I know that feeling of landing gets harder as we age. Is that a Tilley I see also?

Would have been easier on your body to photoshop you in there. :)

I did a similar thing years ago, and ripped a tendon it went with a loud noise just like a rifle shot. It aint worth it Peter!
