Before and after our adventure at the water's edge, Smudge had fun at the playground.
"Can you show me how this works Buppa?"
"I think I've got it!"
"OK, enough of that, let me try climbing this nifty yellow spiral thingy. Hang on tight Buppa."
Buppa had enough of this one and...
encouraged Smudge to try this smaller one.
"Put your feet here like this, and move your hands so you can hold on like this."
Again the phrase rang out loud and clear..."Hold on tight Buppa."
Ah, a nice calm swing at the end of the play time.
