Wednesday 4 September: The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Exhibition at the BFI
I was gutted this free exhibition was sold out , but luckily Bob had a spare ticket so i was able to go. It was so good , love that you got ears and a beautiful card to keep. Won a poster by solving clues, bumped into a few friends and amazing to see up close what Wendy, Brian and many other talented fae folks have been working on. Stunning, inspiring and now cannot wait to start watching ;) Website
As Simon dashed off to go to his last battle ,I went to the seaside with Aly and Rob as might be our last chance to have a seaswim. Popped into dreamland, very vintagy and cool for the seaside amusement park Little swim by the nearest beach before fish and chips and ice cream.
Lots of fab quirky vintage shops that will need another trip to explore more and this one was about swimming The rest of the day was spent swimming in a very cool massive tidal pool, got very windy later on, now warming up in a cafe with hot drink before heading back to London
More fabulous boats in the battle, even hotter than the day before , 30+ degrees so half way through the battle after taking plenty of photos forthe regiment .I snucked to the beach for a long swim and later the whole regiment joined me.
Battle involving boats are always fabulous to watch but melting in our woolly clothes . I wanted to be in the dingies and yatch on the water side , especially the kids in the water in their floats. Lovely that wendy and her family came along and after the battle I found the beach and a few soldiers seemed to have traveled to Victorian times
Thursday 23 August: Lake Meerse Caravan Park & Beach
First thing in the morning whilst everyone was still asleep I had the most gorgeous swim ...makes me so happy Another glorious morning in the water, we went to explore on a different side of the coast and collected lots of massive oyster shells on the beach
Decided to have a little change and check out the beach north of the island. The north as cold as always but fun to play and swim in the waves for a few hours
Our house for a few days in Kortgene, arrived so late after elfteling (we are now in Zeelkand) , the park entry was closed but eventually got sorted. Few metres from lake Meerse and the sun is shining and fresh croissant and stroopwaffle wekayak, waterpark, swim, crabs, too many jelly fish but who care better weather and water a few metre from us ...happy frog
The perfect mix of the thrill rides and fairy tales...torn between the vertical drop mine or the super fast wooden rollercoaster as fav rides of the day.. luckily managed to run back on few times in the last hour. The rest is just pure fabulous. Forest full of magical creatures and old fairy tales, every rides was a complete amazing surprise. Some just said dark rides and next you were thought rooms after rooms of golblin wolds, fairyland, dark magical ships...like an old fashion disney. Loved every minutes and despite not stopping didn't do it all . I want to return and stay in some of their fairytales rooms. www.efteling.com
