It’s a bench!

So much for my stepping stones and extra upright. At the totem pole today we found out what the additions are. A bench. I assume it is for anyone wishing to sit and contemplate the totem pole. Or the castle if you were to sit the other way.

Bench and totem pole in Farnham Park

It is very low to the ground and the seat is just a solid piece of wood. All round, quite uncomfortable, I’d have thought. I didn’t try it out though Day-z did walk on it. Carmen clearly wanted to but she is still on her lead so I had to disappoint her.

Speaking of our little patient…she went to see the nurse today to check for any signs of infection and she was given a clean bill of health! Actually, she is completely back to normal now as Mirinda noticed when she arrived home tonight. There’s no way (except for the big ugly scar) you’d think she’d had an operation on Tuesday. Still, I have to keep her on her lead when out walking until next Saturday! That’s the date for the stitches to come out.

Something else in the park that caught our attention were these two guys sitting in the sky. The contraptions they were flying in appeared to be kitchen chairs with an engine underneath and a fan behind them. Attached to the back of the chair were parachutes. They made an awful racket and flew in out of the sun, so the photo is not that good.

They were also quite a distance away and getting further as I fumbled for the camera. I was surprised that Carmen didn’t react though, given her strong feelings for Montgolfiers.

    Your wife has been in one of those contraptions, without the chair, being towed by a motor boat along the Nambucca River. They were very high in the sky also. love to Gary, Mirinda, Josie and Fred.

    When they are towed by a boat it is called Parra Flying.

    That’s right Claire that’s what they are called. How are you going?
