Doug's loose screws

Because of all the many baboons, all food went back up until we were on the bridge.

What bridge?

This one that we had seen from the Falls.

We got a pass from immigration and walked to the center of the bridge where we entered

We saw a beautiful, full double rainbow,

and then safe from Isabella and all the baboons, the kids ate lunch in Zimbabwe.

The view took my breath away, until…

Something else did.

Lauren (our journeygirl friend) wanted to do the gorge swing, but she wanted someone to go with her.

Doug offered.

No big deal, right?

Wrong. This is where they were going.

So after signing his life away, kissing his family, and paying to do this, he and Lauren jumped off a ledge into the gorge (111meters/364 feet).

Their screams didn't last but a few seconds because the fall took their breath away. Quite a fall.

Can you see that small spot? That is Doug and Lauren at the bottom.

I zoomed in a little, but not too much. I wanted you to see how far away they were.

Coming up.


We have video proof if we can ever load it. That is one of the reasons I don't have a picture of them falling – I was busy videoing
