For much of my life I have not liked heights nor bridges. Not to the levels of avoiding them altogether - my logical side won't allow those fears to take that tight a grip. I have been know to close my eyes when riding over bridges (no not while driving...lol) and I avoid Ferris wheels. I am not a fan of flying, but one does have to get places more quickly than by train, bus or car.
Having moved to Maryland, a very wet state and making many car trips to visit family in Ohio I am almost okay with bridges, I don't close my eyes anymore nor grip the hand rest tightly. YEA! So I though I would
tackle the Ferris wheel thing...kinda.
Hubs and I drove to National Harbor to ride the Capital Wheel. Its one of those huge wheels with enclosed gondola's that are climate controlled. The ride is about 5-7 minutes...I lost count. I had absolutely no sense of being so high up off the ground.
It was WONDROUS! The views were spectacular.
We plan to go back and ride again...I think fall with the leaves in color would be great...and at Christmastime to see the lights and decorations.
