This week, KL’s picture is entitled Cliff EdgeFor visually challenged writers, the image shows a high area of rock with a very steep side, often on a coast. The cliff has a grassy top. The sea can be seen further out.
Jon had told her she was mad to even entertain the idea of climbing the cliff face.
‘Why?’ he’d asked her for the umpteenth time.
‘Because it’s there,’ she’d replied, packing her kit of ropes, karabiners and spikes.
‘But it’s dangerous!’
‘That’s half the fun! I’ll see you at the top.’
Several hours later Jon could hear the plinking of metal and grunting of exertion as Janice finally appeared, exuberant from her climb but exhausted.
As she flopped down on the grass, she saw something out of the corner of her eye.
‘What’s that?’ she asked.
Jon looked over his shoulder and replied ‘You don’t want to know.’
Jon sighed and passed her some clothes he’d brought with him.
‘You’d better put those on and pretty quick.’
‘Why?’ she repeated.
‘Because that sign says ‘NO CLIMBING: Penalty £1000′ and a police car has just pulled up.
You might get away with it…………………’
