Days Out With The Kids Thames Barrier

In the hustle and bustle of London sometimes its hard to find those quiet moments that allow for reflection. I stumbled on Thames Barrier Park as I traveled past on the DLR to London City airport. Amazed by this place that seemed foreign to the London I know I decided to take a trip there with my daughter and came across a place that allowed for moments of reflection while also havinf facilities’ for kids. Places like this I simply refer to as urban serenity. Postcode E16 2HP Closes station is Pontoon Docks on the DLR Line

Whenever I visit the grass always seems to be a shade of green that reminds me of the hulk but you won’t find any big angry people stomping around here you will more than Likely find families having picnics playing tennis or lovers strolling by to gaze on the river Thames. So if your looking for things to do for a few hours I would recommend taking a visit to Thames Barrier Park Postcode E16 2HP Closes station is Pontoon Docks on the DLR Line

To be honest this picture does not do the Thames Barrier justice as it more reminds me of a large futuristic looking structure. If you go in the daytime you’re more likely to see ships and smaller boats passing through the barrier. Postcode E16 2HP Closes station is Pontoon Docks on the DLR Line

If your interested in plane watching than all you have to do is pick a spot on the grass or by the park if you have your kids with you and look upwards as you will see many a plane past as they go for landing in London City Airport which from my recollection is the next stop away.

I’ll tell you a funny story about this picture I was so mesmerised by the glistening surface that I decided I would venture further out to be more at one with this scenic environment. Well I ventured out further alright and was brought right back to reality when my foot got stuck in the glistening “MUD” up to this day I’m still surprised that my trainer wasn’t ruined Minehead, Somerset: TA24

The area I was in around Butlins seemed to close shop early and the streets were virtually empty after 9 pm, so I decided this would be the best opportunity to go for a run on the beach. Yep I was the guy running through thick yellow sand at night! :D For Daddy Fitness contact me! :D Minehead, Somerset: TA24

Days Out With The Kids Emirates Air Line

If you’ve never been on an aeroplane the Emirates Air line is the closes thing to it at a fraction of the cost. There was a point when we was going up so high that I just happened to look down on London city and my imagination ran free… But because I had a 5 year old with me I had to man up! Fun fact my neighbor Steve designed the Emirates air line I asked him for a concessionary special pass he told me Tfl believes in equality… :D Closes Tfl station Royal Victoria or North Greenwich www.emiratesairline.co.uk
