Saturday is big rock caption day!

My kids are at that age now. When I get my camera out they moan, hide or pull a stupid face. I try to catch them when they’re not looking – then they spot me and stick their tongues out or do a silly pose. What they NEVER do is ask me to take their photos.

My eldest is a bit adventurous. He likes wandering off on his own and doing things that are dangerous. If there’s a big rock nearby, he’ll be up it before you can say, well, ‘big rock’. So here he is. On a big rock at Portland Bill near Weymouth.

And what did he do? He asked me to take his picture! He even told me exactly where I should stand to take it, so it would ‘look cool’.

Ladies, and gentlemen, I give you my teenage son on a big rock. Can you caption him?

Son, rock, Dorset, satcap

    • It’s not as bad as it looks – he got there from the top rather than by climbing up! Still scary at the edge though.

  2. Testing mum’s blood pressure medication turned out to be more fun than they thought!

    And as the mum of a true dyed in the wool mountaineer – you are in for an amazing, if heart stopping future! well done that boy – keep on climbing!

    • Thanks very much, very true about the blood pressure – although my daughter panicked more than me!
      I just hope he never goes up Cryb Goch (might have spelled that wrong) near Snowdon – it terrifies me!
