Lloyd Park and Addington Hills

Today we returned to Addington Hills lookout for a day of tree camping, reading and picnicking. It was particularly enjoyable reading “The Gruffalo” from our treetop house. We then headed down the hill to visit the play area in Lloyd Park.

A visit to the Natural History Museum

Today Elias and I went to the Natural History Museum in south Kensington. Despite being very busy (due to the combination of the weather and the summer holidays) we had a wonderful time, especially with the life-sized working model of the T-Rex. The model whale and dinosaur skeletons were also a big hit.

Electric Unicycling Tricks – 10-Pass Piggy-in-the-Middle Penny Spin Boomerangs

This week’s video is of some ten pass piggy-in-the-middle penny spin boomerangs. I added them to the edit at double speed as they can be a little boring to watch at normal speed! If I could work out how to cut out the precession then this would be an amazing trick. Part of the problem is that the car-park is not completely flat, and the wheel is not centrally balanced. I have also included some better footage of normal piggy-in-the-middle penny spin boomerangs from Crystal Palace Park.
