Getting ready for my leap of faith.

A picture of me and this little green froggie. I found a secluded waterfall spot in the botanic garden. I removed my shoes, take off my stockings and dip my tired legs into the falls. It was a blissful and the most relaxing moment in my life. The water flowing down into the stream was icy cold. I spent one hour there. This little froggie was laying still on a big piece of stone by the waterfall. Later the froggie leap and swam against the current to the opposite direction.

  4. Thanks!

    I was a bit hesitant putting those froggie pics at first. Honestly, I am not too happy with those pics, especially the first picture - the froggie seems to be a bit princess like pose.

    Looking back at picture 2...I can see the froggie is getting ready to make a back flip bungee jumping into the water fall.

    "Wee! Here I go, dude...SPLOSH!!!"
