Madhouse diaries : Sophie the adrenalin junkie


After our first disappointing trip to the beach to see the kite surf championship village (most things were cancelled because of the wind and rain), we decided to go back for a second attempt.


After some umming and aahing, Sophie decided to brave the bungee catapult. Right up until the last minute, she didn't look too sure though !



Listen out for the scream ! She must have enjoyed it though because she debated queueing up for another go !


Once her feet were back on the ground and her knees had stopped knocking, she played with the traditional wooden games with Pierre. For this one, you have to balance your colour of balls on the hanging wooden balls in the middle. (And yes, we did keep giggling at the word balls !) There's some serious concentration going on here, as you can tell from Pierre's tongue sticking out !

It's not as daring as Sophie's exploits but Pierre still had great fun in the paddleboats.


Some days, the adventures keep on coming. As we headed home, just opposite our bus stop, there were some little games laid on for the kids with prizes to be won - Pierre won a beach ball and Juliette won a pot of wax crayons that they were both very happy with !


There was just time to tuck into some vegetable kebabs that they were sampling then we jumped on the bus home !

  2. This trip makes up for been rained off the last one, I love it when different things catch the kids imagination and it turns into a really memorable day. They have the bungy thing at Polzeath here too and my kids are always asking for a go, perhaps I 'll let them seeing Sophie enjoy it so much. Thank you for sharing with me on Country Kids.

    1. Just make sure you cover up - long sleeves and trouser legs, and I'd suggest sweatshirts for a bit of padding - to avoid friction burns and be prepared for a few bruises on arms/legs where the harness goes. It's apparently quite painful for the boys, judging by the comments they all made coming off, but they were smiling when they said it ! lol
