The Drugs Keep Me Going, But Now It’s Really Time To Go…

I’ve finished my visit of the 2015 Garderen Sand Sculpture Exhibition, Himself and the kids are due to pick me up, so here is a last look around.

One thing that I notice immediately is that the queue of people waiting to go inside is now massive, stretching  some distance away from the Sand sculpture exhibition entrance area until way out into the garden ornament display bit.

It certainly pays to have been one of the first people in when the doors opened this afternoon. (that’s good advice for any place open to the pubic that is likely to be popular).

As with last year, there is even a small play area for kids so that parents can browse in peace, Nope I didn’t use the trampoline. Do you think I’m mad? (crazy), not a chance. It’s been a half-day opening time today, so for me, short but busy and now I was severely ready for a long rest to recover from all the standing I have been doing.

I have also been popping pain relief  pills rather heavily, something I do on the rare occasions I get some time to do something special these days, but not something I like to do too often. I’m certainly in need of a few more by now, so days out like this don’t occur too often either. I also know that I will be paying for today’s antics for the next few days at the very least, but it has been worth it. Last but not least,  few very realistic garden ornaments… It was hard but I resisted the “come buy me” whispers that that squirrel was making…

  2. Great pictures.

    I hope that one day soon, you won’t need to pop those pills at all anymore. Hugs.
