Firstly I would like to wish my lovely grandson, Harvey J, a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY. He is 7 today; what a wonderful age. Grumpy sends you 7 very big kisses.
It's just about finished; HMS Dangerous-Fun has been named (especially for Harvey J), and is ready to take its Pirate crew on board.
The safety rails are all in place, the Jolly Roger is flying, and there's treasure just waiting to be taken.
I've suggested to Lady M, that in a few years time I'll build another higher floor that will be big enough to take a bed, and have a pukka roof. Another 6 ft up the branches spread out, making it easier to create a larger floor surface area. But for the moment, that's as far up as it goes.
Access is by rope ladder only (to keep out adults). There's a swing built above a steep bank. When flying backwards it's about 2 ft above ground, and when at full flight forwards it's about 10 ft above ground. I've tried it; it's great. It's the swing equivalent of an infinity pool. Otherwise there will be a hammock underneath, and a large sail above, but those I'll install nearer to when the Pirates arrive.
'Dangerous-Fun' was the theme to last year's holiday, so it seemed only fair to name it thus! Hopefully even more dangerous-fun this year.
