J is for Jungle Gym

Just in time to link to Mrs. Nesbitt's
ABC Wednesday Round 4
and participating blogs.








J
uniors, get lost! This playground in Oxford Circle Park, Davis, California, is strictly for adults! These Jungle Gym acrobats are my grandchildren, who were there at dusk one afternoon last January and stayed until after dark. Credit the photos of Myrtle (27 year old archeologist) to her brother, Byron Shock (35-year-old PhD. in artificial intelligence), and credit the photos of Byron to Myrtle Shock. As you can see, they are Jumping with Joy!

Here you can see the intricacy of the strong
ropes designed to fit adult sizes and weights.

How great to see people enjoying themselves, although I have not the faintest idea how these apparatus work. Thanks for your visit to my post about the concentration camps. I answered your comment on my blog.

Jay said...

That looks such fun! I probably wouldn't last five minutes before I had to stop for a breather - or a visit to A & E - but I'd love to have a go.

One of my sons recently went to a birthday party at an indoor 'jungle gym' which mostly caters for kids but does allow adults. HUGE equipment, about a three story high building. He had a whale of a time.
