walking the dog...uphill!

We've done some new walks with Miss Izzy over the past couple of days....


looks fairly innocuous....

 going up...and looking down!!

Today we tried the next hill over....

People train....and race....up the Durie Hill staircase. There is even a special layby where you can park for an hour at the bottom!




You CAN walk up the spiral staircase to see the view.....not for me, thanks!!

There is also a first World War memorial a few yards further on...



and The Pirate was brave enough to go to the top!

we went down in the elevator to river level - cost, $2 each...Izzy goes for free!

then you have the tunnel...


down again...relief!!

That's a wonderfully adventurous walk - well done, Izzy!

So much for afternoon stroll :) beautiful! Love the brick work on that tunnel! Very kiln-ish with arched ceiling. Happy adventure!

Looks like fun... I take it you are not one for heights!
