Came down from the mountain last night. Off to the Marine Park near Kota Kinabalu today.
My daughter – back in the early eighties – was the youngest kid to climb Mount Kinabalu under her own steam. (She made the top before I did that day.) She was on the front page of a local newspaper under the headline: “Tigress of Kinabalu”, a tag which I am sure she wants to forget.
Now she has just done it again some 25 years later. Fortunately, the morning they made the peak was brilliantly clear.
This time I didn’t go. Knees won’t tolerate that kind of thing any more.
And now we are off to soak up some sun and sand and sea water.
