The red brick house that you can't see behind the trees is the Dragon Lady Grotto. This is only a fraction of our park. It's big enough for 2 Rugby League fields and we figure that it's about 1 kilometer in circumference. So, aren't we lucky to have so much playground for the grandchildren? The down side is that until this time of year it's too hot to make use of it until late in the day.
On Saturday we looked after the McTavish grandchildren again. For more than an hour we were in the park and even Monkey had a great time. He forgot all about his obsession with food for the whole time.
There is a cycle path around the park and various (adult size) gym equipment also dotted around the park close to the path. Lion can just reach the handle bars on this one. I'm pretty pleased that I managed to catch the action with my camera.
