Have fun looking around 🙂

Typhoon Lagoon

typhoon lagoon guide

Another of Disney’s water parks…

The main attraction of this park is the wave pool. You may be thinking of the odd swimming pool in this country with a wave machine. Oh no, oh no! This wave machine makes waves that are HUGE! The family and I positioned ourselves in a depth of just above waist height thinking we’d be fine. Again, Oh no! My bikini bottoms went up my bum (they are shorts style – nothing skimpy), Jude’s vest top came down; you are literally thrown and pummelled around an I ended up underwater practically sitting on top of some random man. Unfortunately on the second wave I was thrown onto the bottom of the pool where my knee scraped on the rough concrete surface and walked out of the pool with blood dripping down my leg. I still have a pink patch on my knee. So this is a warning – be very careful and only allow strong swimmers in, and bare in mind, that even in the large bit that is normally ankle deep; when a wave comes along, it becomes thigh high. Don’t think of wearing any jewellery or glasses that might come off (no glasses strap is strong enough – I wore prescription goggles).

The lazy river is just as lovely as Blizzard beach, but there isn’t a family raft ride that’s anywhere near as good. It’s just a big slide in a big rubber ring. Good fun though. My favourite slides were the crush ‘n’ gusher “water coaster” as it’s a longer slide and takes you up and down a few times. You can ride it in 2s or 3s, and I’d do the double ring, because for some reason, the triple inflatable has holes in the bottom and it was fairly painful on the bum!

Sorry – I haven’t got any photos of Typhoon Lagoon. I’ll try and do a video clip of the big waves though soon.

Overseas,

Beach holiday in Lanzarote
A week in Lanzarote for a Canary Islands winter sun holiday
December 7, 2018
The all-round plan for this holiday was to do as little as possible. Everyone in the family agreed, but admittedly, all had slightly different versions in our minds of what ‘doing nothing’ actually meant! We have never had a holiday like this. In the past it’s all been road trips and busy sight-seeing adventures and after an exhausting week exploring Rome and Venice earlier in the year, we thought we were due a relaxing time away for a change….
Basildon Park national trust house
A visit to Basildon Park near Reading. Places to visit near the M4
May 12, 2018
Last week we actually had a taster of a social life and drove all the way to London for a friend’s birthday barbecue. I was a lovely weekend, and it was so nice to go to a party and chat to old friends and meet new people. If you know me, then you’ll know this is a bit out of my comfort zone, but I think I managed not to panic and say anything stupid! Anyway, instead of the usual A303 route back to Somerset, we decided to take a slower route beginning with the M4 and then detouring through the English countryside. We stopped for a while at the National Trust property near Reading; Basildon Park…..
Visiting Bath Fashion Museum
October 21, 2016
The good thing about Blogtober is that I’m managing to fit in articles that I’ve had in mind to write for quite some time. This is about my visit to the Bath Fashion Museum, which although doesn’t feel like very long ago, was actually in April! It was during Bath Fashion Week and I wanted to make the most of my day-trip, and as I was going to a talk by Livia Firth in the same building, I thought I’d quite like to have a look round the new exhibition called A History of Fashion in 100 Objects….
3 Days in Oxford – Day 2. The story of the photographs
October 12, 2016
If you haven’t yet seen Day 1, then you might like to follow this link and come back here later. The morning of my second day in Oxford was mainly spent walking from the Four Pillars Hotel in Sandford-on-Thames along the Thames path into Oxford. I’ve already written a detailed blog with photos about the journey in this post, so I’ll begin here where I left off, entering the city by Christchurch College. I sort-of meandered my way through cobbled streets and past various ancient University buildings until I came out at a place I remembered….
