Christmas on the Port: Having a Ball


The Christmas Fair at Port Hercule has loads of rides and slides for children - the swimming pool has become an ice rink, there's a big wheel and of course, no fair would be a fair without barbe à papa (candy floss).

This year there's a new ride where the kids are zipped into a ball and then they roll themselves around the course where they have snow, sea, tempest and sand to contend with, yet all within the safety of their magical cocoon. Some started off a little wary but within a couple of minutes were having an absolute ball (excuse the pun).

Tomorrow, we'll see how it all works.

I bet they feel like hamsters running around in their ball.

I've always wanted to try that! Do they let adults play too?

Kate said...

A fantastic photo! Can't wait for Olivia to see it! She'll probably want to visit you to try it herself.

WoW -- it reminds me of the famous zorb balls in New Zealand. (One of my life dreams is to try one!)
