I bought myself a Wet’n’Wild Gold Pass early on when the park was first advertising availability. I like the idea of somewhere nearby with water that I can go to, to relax.
I missed out on the preview days before the park opened on the 12th, on account of being in Melbourne at the time. Since returning I haven’t really had time to go yet.
I’m hoping to remedy this tomorrow.
They are open till 11pm.
The weather forecast indicates 40+ during the day, going to 28-ish in the evening.
This all sounds perfect for having a look around the park. I don’t even need the water-slides so much the first trip; just bobbing around in some water will do, and not thinking of anything else.
I wish I could come back with pictures tomorrow night, but alas… modern society has decided that taking a camera into a water park is tantamount to pornography, so just words will have to do. We live in sad sad times.
I went out for a long walk through the park. I wore my walking shoes. I brought the tripod. And then I barely used it… I think I may have one or two sharp images in the following collection, but I guess the focus of today’s lesson was elsewhere.
I shot all the following pictures with the 24-105mm lens, in Auto-mode, but with manual focus. I didn’t adjust the eyepiece beforehand, and I probably should have. Still, it was good practice overall.
I walked enough to get up to 8588 steps as well… so there’s that.
