Day 886: Children in Weston-super-Mare

We took our guests on a walk around Weston-super-Mare. As one of them was a 6-year-old boy, we needed to re-adjust to his needs. This meant looking around us in a new way, finding places where a child could find entertainment. He was quite fine walking on the promenade, although he kept asking when we would reach a café. Probably hungry. Near the Marine Lake, a beautiful artificial body of water with a mirror-like reflection, offering plenty of opportunities for photographs, we found a small strip of sand. As it is located next to the Marine Lake, it is not affected by low and high tides, the sand remains untouched. Someone had drawn lots of bunnies on there. Lovely beach art. We had lots of fun there, creating our own.

Another place where to take a child in Weston-super-Mare is the adventure park/playground near the promenade. There are many places where to climb and it even looked fun for grown-ups. A wooden castle, slides, swings… It was supposed to be for children up to 12 years old but some of the attractions could endure adults as well. However, they were a bit small for us. When climbing a wooden castle, I realised how big and tall I am compared to children.

It is also possible to take the children to the Helicopter Museum, the Tropicana, and museums as many of them have special programmes for children. I know that they love to play at the arcades as well but for me, it sounds odd. We don’t have such tradition in Estonia. Teaching children to be addicted to gambling already from a tender age? Oh, no thanks.

Progress Report

1. Own and live in a house.

Again, a busy day, on which I didn’t have time to earn money.

2. Write AND publish a book.

Read just a tiny bit more of Waters’ The Night Watch. Also, a vague idea of the creative piece I would need to submit in a few days started to emerge.

3. Win a major race.

An easier run. So-so. Can be almost satisfied.
