My Moment Of Moxie

The Giant Swing.

Daughter, her family and I went to Lake Compounce on 4rth of July. Son in law had purchased the tickets earlier. A lunch had been booked in the Catering Pavilion. A whole crowd of people were there to have fun. As usual we forgot to bring with us spare clothes in the event of our getting wet.

We waited an hour for a raft ride through the tunnels. Nola and I shared a raft. I had already put my IPhone in FJ’s camera bag for fear of it getting wet, so I didn’t take any more photos except for the one above. FJ took photos with his camera, as he didn’t take any rides, he took care of three years old M5, and kept her pacified on kiddy rides.

Nola and I shrieked our heads off as we got wetter jetting through the dark tunnel with the terrifying force of water. Our clothes were dripping with water, as we got off the raft. Our wet clothes helped in beating off the hot weather, and they dried in the process.We got separated from the children as they wanted to be on all rides, and Nola and I just wanted one, or two more. Next we got on the giant swing. It was fun swinging, rushing through the air. FJ captured a close up of me, hoping to get a picture of a freaked out mother in law, but it didn’t happen.

Next we located the children, and headed towards th Catering Pavilion to eat our lunch. Everyone had developed huge appetite for the sumptuous lunch served.

For our next ride we chose the Boulder Dash. It was again a long wait. I’m never going to have another on like that again. It was terrifying.  I shared the ride with an unknown lady. She dislodge my scarf, and then my visor, when she threw up her hands. I lost my visor as a result, and was narrowly going to miss my scarf as well due to the exuberance of the lady sitting beside me.  I held on to my scarf, as the wind whipped against my head with full force. It was my moment of moxie.

We went to collect a picture of us taken on the ride. I got one as a fridge magnate, and one photo, while Nola got a large picture, and a key ring. We paid for them.


It was evening as Nola, and I finished our Roller Coaster Ride. We waited for the children to join us. It was 9.30 pm by the time we got in the car to get back home.
