We had our picnic in the shadow of the lighthouse, the girls took their Rollerblades and scooter along to use on the pathways.
We spent quite a while at the mini gym, a great alternative to the usual park apparatus as it can be used by both children and adults, most had a lower and higher version to accommodate different sizes.
This human clock was interesting, there is a diagram in the middle with the months of the year on it, you have to stand on the date that you are on and hold your arms up like Abigail is doing in this picture and the sun shows the time - like an enormous sundial really! Quite clever.
I didn't see many real fish but there were these pretty fake ones!And seeing as we were in Greenpoint and the Putt-Putt was just across the road we had a game. There were some interesting styles to say the least!!!
The first Saturday of every month is when you can head out to Parow for rides on mini trains at the Western Province Live Steamers Club. We've been a couple of times before.
The kids enjoyed it this time too despite a really loooong wait - it's definitely grown in popularity and the queues are longer than when we first started going but it quietened down as the afternoon drew on.
There is another Easter holiday coming up and hopefully time for some more fun in amongst the celebrations.
