After yesterday’s early start for a dash across Europe, we had a lazy morning. I convinced Roo to come to the market with me where we found some “halfvolle melk” that—unlike the milk we brought yesterday—was actually milk, and not sour cream.
Croissants for breakfast then exploring Discovery Bay; a pirate-themed indoor play area complete with water play and its own beach. There’s even a floating platform that you can stand on and pull a rope to cross the water. This place is amazing, both the kids loved it.
In the afternoon we went swimming at “Aqua Mundo”. Unlike the UK, Belgiums are less concerned with extreme health and safety. This meant that Rootwo could finally go on the rapids (or “rapits” as he called them) and the white slide that made your tummy turn upside down.
The heavens opened and the kids enjoyed splashing in the huge puddles that had formed while we were swimming. They obviously weren’t feeling wet enough.
They took no convincing to go to bed tonight; both were asleep in seconds. Katie and I weren’t far behind.
