Day 180 – Adventures of Lobster-Boy

I bet everyone is getting really sick of hearing about Wet’n’Wild by now. Today was mostly about the park though; my leave has just started and my friends’ leave is just about to end, so this was the last day of overlap where we could just not care.

I applied my 50+ sunscreen in the morning, which is supposed to last 4 hours with water-resistance. And I re-applied it about halfway through my 7 hour visit. Clearly these things do not work according to the label… at least not for me.

For some reason Holly came out only slightly pink on her chest where she apparently always burns, and Steven was lathered up ghost-like with a complete-sun-block.

I was not as lucky…

Abbey and Lexi have banned me from the outside world tomorrow, so I guess that’s a good way to make some progress on my other goals for the holidays. *sheepish look* They relished applying the icy-cold Aloe Vera gel over the top of my burns, and I really don’t feel like I have a right to complain about the shiver-inducing effect.

I think I’m due for re-application, but this post takes precedence. Or at least that’s my excuse.

I’ll see how it develops, because I now still have a massage booked for 9am tomorrow, but whether or not that is a good idea is debatable at this stage. But maybe more applications will bring the pink down another degree.

Probably wishful thinking.

It doesn’t feel as painful from the inside as it looks from the outside. I can assure you, because it looks painful to me too when I look at these pictures.

Hopefully I can avoid peeling too badly.
But even that’d be just desserts at this stage.

Day 170 – Dinner and a Show

Tonight I went to Wet’n’Wild with some friends… after work and the gym. You could call it a bit of a packed day. Had a great time trying a few more of the slides. I don’t quite have a complete set yet, but I’m working on it.

Maybe I’ll manage to complete the set tomorrow?

There was only one hiccup all night. The racer slides had a bit of a mishap when someone got stuck halfway down… we theorized that they might have lost momentum by not keeping the front of their mat pulled up inside the tube. Trust me, that sentence actually makes sense…

Everything else worked out brilliantly though.

And when it gets dark, they turn on the light-show on the various slides. I hadn’t had dinner yet before heading out, so I took the opportunity to sit down with a burger and some chips and watch the people come by with the flashing lights in the background.

Anyone else up for a day in the water? 🙂
