to bogan land
Today we went to bogan land. Actually it wasn’t bogan land it was toboggan land and it his a downhill thingy just like at Jambaroo.
We rocked up to the empty carpark and went inside o pay our monies. We bought 3 rides on the toboggan. The lady who sold us the tickets then had to come and turn on the machine that pulls you up to the top of the hill.
She said I could take Oscar on it, in fact the safety briefing was “the track is yours so go as afst or slow as you like, he will love it”.
I’m pretty sure 10 month old babies are not supposed to go on down hill fast toboggans, especially when the sign says “you must be over 130cm to ride this”. Oscar is about 70cm.
Anyway i figured i would just go super slow and give Oscar a ride.
We set off up the hill sitting on our toboggan with Oscar between my legs, he enjoyed hitting the brake leaver, until about half way up the hill then he got bored and started to whinge.
At the top we where ready to hit the slope but there was a big arse lizard, crocodile, dinasor blocking the track.
I figures it would run off as we got closer but it didn’t. So we stopped and i began banging the track with my foot, nothing. I then reached over and got a stick and banged around the track just near the dinasor, nothing. So we just sat there. I took a photo and sat there some more. I wasn’t really sure what to do as i wa at the top of a bush covered mountain alone on a track with T-rex blocking my path.
Eventually it dawned on me that the iphone i used to take the photo could also make calls. So i rang jenny and she talked to the lady who eventually arrived in a toboggan behind me with a broom. She poked T-rex with the broom, nothing. Eventually she decided to push him off the track, she said it happens quite a lot and they get stuck in the track casue it’s so slippery. Eventually she got the beast off the track and we began our decent.
Oscar didn’t really like it.
Next it was jenny’s go and she was in a dress and thongs, the lady said she could go barefoot is she wanted. So off jenny went while Oscar and i played with a stick which he enjoyed much more than the $7.50 toboggan ride i wasted on him!
Then i had another gu without the baby and had a good time.
And that was bogan land.
We also visited 2 beaches, a lookout and a shopping centre.
The place we are staying in is awesome, apart from the pillows which are concrete speed bumps in pillow cases so we bought some pillows in Kmart.
