The Flying Fox

The Flying Fox


As a child I loved to go to Pilley Park with my parents. It was a 30 minutes drive but we travelled all that way because there was a flying fox which we loved. When I moved to New Zealand there were lots of Flying Foxes near my home. Again, I loved the feeling of flying through the breeze. When moving to Lancashire I was really pleased to discover that our local park has a flying fox and what more can I say than like mother like daughter. Sylvia loves the flying fox just as much as i did as a child. This photo was taken by my husband as I’ve been too unwell to go out the past two weeks, however it’s so great to see pictures of my child happy and having fun. I do hope you all like it.

      Oh how cool! I’m learning more and more about Coombe mill in small snippets. It sounds great! Angela x

    This is a lovely, happy photo. However, I’ve never known this to be called the ‘Fly Fox’ before, always just ‘the zip wire.’ I like your phrase better, so I may adopt it!
    Looks like you had a lovely time at the park

    You can’t beat the simple pleasure of a flying fox. Our kids love them. Great action capture.

      So true. I love anything that goes through the air fast, so long as its not upside down. I tried bungee jumping and that was horrible. Angela x

    She is having so much fun. I do these with Baby, running alongside holding her on! x

      I can remember doing that to sylvia… running by her side and holding her- when she was younger as I didn’t want her to fall…now she is the perfect age! Thanks for stopping by. Angela x

    I used to love these as a child as well Angela. What a great shot! I loved the feeling of freedom I got from riding on one and the trying not to fall off as it bounced at the end. Sending lots of ‘get well soon’ love. xxx #mysundayphoto

      Thanks Kim. It sure was fun for Sylvia. xx

    Wonderful action shot.

    I love zip wires, but N can’t really be trusted to keep hold until after the rebound. His last attempt he left go too early without taking his legs down and ended on his head. So he’s wary of going on one now. Plus I need someone at the start to help him on so I can catch him at the end.

    • September 14, 2015 / 10:43 pm

      We do too! I hope to be well enough to go on one again one day! 🙂 Angela xx

    I’ve never heard it called a ‘flying fox’ before – it’s a much better name than ‘zip wire’. What a lovely happy photo – Sylvia looks like she’s having so much fun 🙂

      Yes I like the name. I think it must be different in different areas of the uK. It was really fun for her! Have a great week Louise. Angela x
