Thorpe Park

And here are, as promised, some impressions from our trip to Thorpe Park (an amusement park here in the UK) last Sunday. The weather was just perfect - around 25 d C, not a cloud in sight.

And off we go

DH Nafees came along as well, though he wouldn't get on any rides!

Oh, not sure if this was a good idea.

No, not a good idea at all!

Ruby, Nafees and Natasha

Looked like a lot of fun, but I really didn't want to get myself soaking wet

We loved the Fiftees style make up of this part of the park. And the great Fiftees music - it just really made the place instead of the usual load blast of chart
songs.

Natasha and Ruby didn't mind getting wet.

And that's me!


The Park was really busy, so long waiting times at the rides- here are my 3 'boys' taking a rest.


Nafees was in charge of the video camera.


Natasha on the 'Merry go round' which was really more suitable for younger children as it was a very gentle ride.


Ruby on the same ride, being a bit embarrased to be sitting in the teacup with a bunch of 3 year olds.


Again I have to say we really liked the diffenrent styles of decorations around the park, all themed. Really creative. Here we are in front of the ride 'SAW' (like the movie), and the put up this old and battered American Police car.








A pigeon caught flying away from the 'dinner table'. Though it looks pretty dirty here, I have to say that all the catering facilities were clean and there was something for every taste e.g. grill, chicken, pizza, Burger King. Even this dirty table here was cleaned up very quickly by the staff while we sat on the next table.


Nothing better for the boys than to round up the day at the amusement centre.

Thanks Mylene. I'm glad I'll have some more time now and will hopefully be more online now.
