Back for a moment….

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.

  1. hmmm…somehow Tiger of Kinabalu sounds more impressive than Tigress of Kinabalu. Tiger seems to suggest a hero. Tigress suggests snarling bad temper to me…*g*
