We picked up our challenge to visit all the playgrounds in North Tyneside this year by visiting John Willie Sams Centre playsite in Dudley. This playground has a skate park, lots of open space, and a large area with play equipment.
The play equipment is varied for a wide age range. For example there are four baby swings and four normal swings, though the two types of swings are not next to each other or close by. Noah loves the swings these days. The other day he just giggled and giggled the whole time he was in there, which was just the cutest!
The star of this park are the two spinning bowls! James loved spinning around in them, and asked for Noah to sit in one so he could be pushed. I didn’t fancy that so James contented himself by pushing another boy round until he got super dizzy!
Such a lot of fun, spinning around: “faster!” “No! Not too fast!” “Faster!”
We left this park when Noah needed feeding, and unfortunately leaving was a bit of a horrible time: I’d managed to park the car in a cloud of corn flies. Ugh! They were everywhere. My red car looked black as they were crawling all over the car, so climbing in was horrific! We got home and jumped straight in the bath to wash the flies out of our hair. The next day I woke up with a fly in the corner of my eye. Bluergh!
