Saturday, I get up early as Les is collecting me to take me for a day out. When he gets round I give him a fast cooked sausage sandwich, which he describes as lightening hot. And so we are off for a well deserved day out.
It rains the whole way here, and once here it rains some more. I warn him I’m worried. Worried about loosing the sense of being able to stand up. Nope I’m terrified.
The last time I came it was 2004. Les drives to find the parking spot. It is still here.
It’s all a miss. You don’t get tickets at the ticket office no, and Noah’s Ark is well not Noah's Ark anymore, its the way in.
Seemingly it is wet out there.
And what we have been on was wet. Incredibly wet. Yeah the fun of having me and Les together always did make a big splash. Tis though was just plain wet. And that was indoors.
So wet my nuts are numb. I have a hot chocolate. My body needs it.
While Les catches up on the footie.
I study the waterproof map.
A bit later I buy a bucket and spade for £3.20. It is very worth while getting one. It comes with free fries inside too.
You just can’t imagine how wet it is.
Its no drier on the inside either.
Yes my pants are wet through.
Thankgod for another hot cholate. Today I have a thing about hot chocolate. Maybe it is the first word.
Yes I’m wet and yes its windy.
Erm is that a dragon?
Quick we must
save the teddies.
And with that we que up to see ghosts, only we don’t see any.
Les makes a suggestion we go somewhere drier.
And so we leave.
He is right though, it is drier in his car set to 30deg C and the heated seats on full blast.
We go for tea, not where we are but somewhere else, although we know we want a Frankie and Bennies.
I order a hot chocolate, it comes with cream and chocolate maltster's. Les is not impressed when he hears it is free refills. I’m all “yay” and the waitress loves it.
Our starters come.
I must write so I do.
It’s all about Noah you see. The original Ark is here, right in front of us.
And after lovely little write the food comes.
Thankgod Les ordered the big pizza, because its a bit small.
Then the waiter comes over and says, we have brought you the right sized pizza you ordered sir, as well.
Bemused, I leave him work out how he is going to eat it all. And he doesn’t!
