When I was at the other end of town to visit the Medieval Market (the previous blog post), I was surprised to see all the activities available. The last time I was at the river, I didn’t notice much more than bicycle rentals and the pedal boats that I got to enjoy with Sara, John, and Truly Great Nephew Jack (click here to see how truly great). There may have been a couple of other things, but still it was pretty quiet. Now there’s a restaurant/bar right on the river below the castle and a whole bunch of outdoor activities — a rock wall, surfboard and boat rentals, and more. The zip line across the river looked especially fun. My impression was that these were all high-season installations (primarily the month of August) — even the restaurant. I’ll have to check back. (The first photo and the last four can all be made even more exciting — bigger — if you click on them.)

|AN EMPTY TOWER. MOMENTS LATER, IT WAS FILLED WITH “ZIPPERS.”|
|THIS IS SOMETHING I WOULD LIKE TO TRY.|
|SHE SCREAMED ONCE. I WONDER IF SHE REALIZED SHE COULD HAVE USED THE BRIDGE.|
|NOT A MOMENT OF HESITATION.|
