Additions to the garden
Two girls heard about the slide and begged their Dad to bring them round today, which he did. They were so funny to watch, as the first one sat nervously at the top of the slide and said she couldn't go. Eventually she let go and slid into the water and then there was no stopping them, for about the next two hours.
Down the slide, across the pond, out onto the jetty, run around to the slide ...
What we'll figure out in the next few days is the optimum number of children (of whatever age, probably including those over 60) who can climb, slide, swim, run, climb ... without getting in each other's way. It's obviously so much fun that there's not much stopping in the cycle.
Everyone goes faster down the slide without clothes on, but I'm not sure whether that will be a popular option in a wider social setting! [:0]
I have a jetty to launch the dingy from
only the geese slide down the banks of mine
and occassionally the dog when he thinks I am not looking
so you dont have the big grand daddy eels to bite you on the bum then Ruth?
Wide enough for a Stephan bum! It's about 500mm wide, at a guess.

Not if you enter at that speed! I presume all the living creatures in the pond are round the other end of the island when there's swimming going on. There are fish, crays, sometimes frogs, and so far I've only seen small eels around the edges at night. The kids ask if there are eels; I rarely tell them the whole truth.

Oh that's right-its not a swimming pool, its a farm pond, whew!

So? [}] I'm sure you can photoshop the photos to make them 'family friendly' [8D]

There are no bad questions only those that are not asked.
