Quad Biking

We have recently had another family from the UK out to join us for a week's holiday and what a blast we had . . . .

Apart from being absolutely exhausted from all of the activities we did with them, the boys decided to go quad biking.  We went  to one of the quad biking places at Big Red, only to find that there was a bit of ruckus going on between some customers and the owners.  Something about the bike being damaged and the owners demanding payment . . .  we are not sure, but there was another place across the road, which was not drawing a crowd, so we went there instead!

Apparently, the helmets were not really up to much and the lads felt that one bang on the helmet would make it fall apart, but the boys weren't up for going really mad, so they went with it!

(I sadly was stuck in the car with the exhausted children, so I didn't get to go on the bikes.)

Apparently there were some ladies on the quad bikes with their abaya's on.  That I would love to have seen.  Brilliant!

It was approaching sunset and they had a fantastic time - they came back though looking rather windswept and sandy.  Perhaps not a great activities for some of the "oldies" to do when they are out here, but for those adventurous enough to try, a great end to a great day!

It's my turn next time . . . !

My seventeen year old would have enjoyed riding the bikes out in all that sand lol...

Reminds me of the times in youth when we'd go to the sandhills and surf down them on something like a skateboard. Hardest part was getting back up the hills
