Sadly the summer holidays are drawing to a close so I am trying to make the most of my time with Scott. I decided to take a trip to an old summer holiday haunt from my childhood, Girvan. Like most of these seaside towns, it has definitely seen better days, but the harbour-side park was great fun for Scott. It has hard to believe that a few weeks ago we were in sweltering temperatures. The air had an autumnal feel to it and Scott was quickly persuaded to don not one, but two jackets as he realised his t-shirt wouldn’t be enough in the chilly breeze.
There was lots of good climbing to be done and Scott was in his element.
The slides were pretty cool too:
A wet bottom was inevitable though!
There were some good tube slides too:
Before we set off in the morning, I showed Scott some pics of the park and he had been excited by the boating pond. He was a bit disappointed to discover no boats there today. It was probably for the best as I can’t imagine being able to keep Scott on a boat and peddle at the same time. He did enjoy running over the bridge though.
Scott did let me do some of the work on the swings
He was also determined to have a wee shot of the assault course:
A slightly unconventional approach to shopkeeping!
On the buzzy bee:
We went up to the prom for a wee shot on Scott’s bike. He is still not pedalling but enjoys sitting like Lord Muck while I push him along.
It wasn’t long before he was looking wistfully out to sea:
Before I got the chance to stop him, he ran down the steps onto the beach:
I came prepared with Scott’s swimming stuff, but had rejected the idea when we stepped out of the car. Scott, however, was very much up for it so I decided to give in.
Back home, Scott also tried out his new kite today:
What fun days we have had this summer. I am going to miss this boy so much come Thursday. 😦
