Day Trip To Ponderama

Here is another walkabout from Aribella Lafleur.

Day Trip To Ponderama

We have undertaken the long and arduous annual pilgrimage to see Burning Life. To my dismay, the Sherpas began to buckle under the insignificant weight of my essentials and required almost daily rest stops. A lucky pick for just such a break, Ponderama proved to be a small oasis of fun in the entertainment desert.

Bouncy Castle

The lure of a bouncy castle was too much for the likes of me to resist…. True to form, I dressed in my Sunday best and dragged my loyal (and multiplying) Sherpa crew to visit the Ponderama Flea Market.

To no avail, I tried my hardest to deflate the bright, buoyant monstrosity with heels that could punch a hole through the skull of a charging bull. I did, however, manage to bounce over the top of the castle and land face-first on the sidewalk…..

Luggage Slide

After choosing not to file a lawsuit, I jumped back into the springy paradise and elbowed my companions as we jostled each other for space. Growing tired of bruising ourselves, we wandered around looking at the car-boot sale. A sign for a giant slide caught my attention and soon I was dragging my luggage-toting Sherpas to join me in an extremely genteel-looking glide (or ten) down the slope to land in a heap at the bottom.

Ponderama Croc Sign

Passing many bullet-riddled signs warning of the harmful local wildlife, I found a ride-on lawnmower which munched a hole in my designer gown…. Perhaps it wasn’t meant to be ridden after all.

Flying Thong

After a short trip via giant flying thong (no, I DON’T mean a g-string) we settled down for a meal of snags and prawns on the barbie… (which translates in Yank-speak as sausages and big shrimp on the barbecue). Our mini mascot bear strayed too close to the flames and was virtually singed…. but thankfully was saved by his fire-retardant parka.

Urged onward by eager anticipation of Burning Life, we hastened towards our goal.
