Last night [Sunday] we went for an impromptu crazy golf match. I've been a fan of the crazy golf game since childhood with memories of constantly replaying the game in Keswick [Lake District] and Filey Beach on trips and holidays. Because it's a game of part luck part skill it's always been a fun game to play and with having a really fun crazy golf set up pretty close to us has been hard to ignore. The 19 holes were based around the idea of rocks and water - with huge fountains and waterfalls all around with music coming out of speakers disguised as stones - so rad!
The course itself was pretty fun - loads of holes on different levels so you had to rely on getting your ball [provided in multiple bright colours] through the right pipes and not have it floating in the water. Although the signs constantly telling you to give up after five shots didn't appeal to the British spirit inside me! Most of the holes were par 2's - we were really off on our style! But to me that adds to the fun. Joe even grabbed a hole in one but that didn't save him from loosing. I won by just won shot - purely because of luck!
You would have thought that the weather at 5pm would have began to start to cool off - how wrong was I?! If anyone knows any tips to acclimatise to heat really well and quickly then I'd love to hear them. I'm really acting as the Yorkshire lass melting in the 30 degree heat to the point were I'm even wearing shorts. I never wore shorts in the UK because of being paranoid about my legs because of thinking theyl looked huge - how times have changed. Coming home to some of the limited edition batches of Ben and Jerries [which if you shop in a Meijer are two for $6 right now] Rocky Road-ish [which has some gorgeous toasted marshmallow twirls in] certainly helped!
