Weekend Antics

Sunshine, splashes, world records and roller-coasters...

On Saturday 21st September I joined over 100,000 spectators at Rainbow Harbour for the Red Bull Flugtag in Long Beach. 

28 teams created crazy flying contraptions which mostly plunged straight into the water from the 30 foot pier, but one team succeeded in breaking the world Flugtag distance record. The Chicken Whisperers flew 258 feet, knocking the competition out of the water. 

Taking our own exciting journey on Sunday, we rented a Zip car from the CSULB campus and drove to Knott’s Berry Farm theme park. I was amazed at the lack of queues as we walked straight on to some of the biggest rides. Top rides of the day: Silver Bullet and Xcelerator 

To end what was a tiring but enjoyable weekend we took a scenic drive to Laguna Beach to watch the sunset. A perfect summation of life in California!
