Shrouded in mist-ery
The Pirate Barrels (exactly the same as the spinning teacups at Paultons' Park) were totally fabulous (apart from the dubious nursery rhymes blaring at you), you can make them spin faster if you turn the central wheel so after the first ride a distinctly pale Bud got off and I went alone a further twice, exiting the ride like a true Pirate who's just been paid in rum. Right at the very end we glimpsed a glimmering glint of sunshine upon the sea below, but we still drove back through cloud.
Back for archery, another free activity. The plastic bows and arrows were a bit crap but we all liked the crossbows. I got much better at shooting and then went for a sweaty hour in Monkey World.
Took a beach ball swimming this time. Apparently today there was a duck in the outside pool.
