Hike #26 Cape Lookout

So, the real hike we intended on doing while on vacation last weekend was actually really scary and we ended up turning back almost 2 miles in due to hurricane force winds and a sheer cliff that I didn't want to fall off of. This is hike number 26 from oregonhiking.com.
At the time we didn't think we had made it very far before turning back, but after we saw a map of the trail we were sadly disappointed to know that  we had almost made it to the end and should have kept going.
It was a nice hike though and I surprised myself at how easy it was for me. 
When my husband announced last week that he was taking me on a 5 mile hike I was a little skeptical that I was going to sweet a bunch and  make a fool out of myself by being winded half way back. I made myself proud. I was soar the next day though, but it was a great feeling.
We managed to find the marker for a 1943 WW2 airplane crash that happened on the cape. We were actually looking for it on the way down, but didn't notice it till we were headed back up. I guess its because we were on a cliff that was maybe four feet wide with no railings. I think I was a little distracted. 
The ten feet of railing in this one spot should have given it away. To bad the railing was falling off the cliff!
Heard a lot of creaking trees in this part. Made me nervous.

Jason decided to go out on the log just as a huge gust of wind came along. He almost fell, and if he had, I would have captured it on film.
 Another crazy adventure in the life of a Henderson. I can't wait to see what the road brings me to next. Maybe some of you out there would like to join me next time. Its always a blast!

IMDB Trailer
Review: If this isn't fantastic or what? I loved the book and I'm always a little leary about watching the movie after I loved the book, but this one was worth the watch. 
I loved the dystopian zombie world. A bacteria has taken over the minds of those who are infected and they crave human flesh, but the children born with this disease arm mostly alive. They can learn and love, just like any normal child. The only difference is, they still crave flesh.
There are so many twists and turns in the story. It kept me on the edge of my seat. It wasn't really scary like a lot of zombie movies so if you are not a big fan of horror I think you would be safe with the semi freaky movie.
5 out of 5…

What I'm Reading This Week | #WeeklyMenu Week #255

Its Monday again. Always Monday. We go through the week and them come back to Monday. They day that I have to myself, or wished I had to myself. Really I share it with everyone. Never time to myself. Never a quiet moment away from people. It makes it hard, since I need my quiet time to rewind and reset for the week. I don't get that. All I get is angry. How am I supposed to feel better if I can't have my quiet time?

On the other side of things, I finally sat down to write. It was a nice day. The sun was shining, there was a cool breeze and an open pick-nick table on my lunch break. Perfect weather for a mid day writing session. Got a lot done on my new manuscript. I'm hoping this one will land me an agent, but we shall see.

Guess what I' reading this week? Ok, you probably already know because of the picture. Exit West. It serves two purposes for me. Its on my shortest books I wanted to read list and also takes care of one of my bingo spots, a book about today's is…
