Cliff Jumping Mom Style

After the girls' cliff-jumping adventure we went on in to Hana for an ice cream at the little store, and headed for the Pools of Oheo. I'd forgotten until we rounded corner that this was there:

I was so jazzed by the girls' jump, as soon as I saw this smaller cliff, and the jump into a freshwater pool rather than the ocean waves, I said "I can do THIS!" But I didn't want to go alone so I asked the girls to come along. Lindsey smirked and said this was nothing, not even worth the effort... so she became the assigned photographer. Hilary was kind enough to keep me company.

This is about 20 feet. Nothing right? WRONG! Once I got up top, it took me a good fifteen minutes and Hilary jumping first before I worked up the nerve.

My knees were weak and my heart was pounding but OH WHAT A FEELING!

And oh yeah - once was enough ;)

You are braver than me. I don't think I could have forced myself to jump.
