ABC Wednesday - Zorb

Ambling through my local park this past summer I spotted something new in the distance by the boat hire shed.  Zounds I thought what is happing over there with the strange orbs in the water.
So off for a nosey and discovered a new attraction for the school holidays, a collection of Zorbs.  You can see the zip entrance where one can enter the Zorb world. The fruitless efforts of children of all ages to make the ball move across the water entertained me on all those occasions I walked through the park this summer, that and watching the various techniques to try to get motion across the water.  I would give all the participants an A for effort.  The local model yacht fraternity
 seemed oblivious to all the activity of flailing arms and legs zorbing to their right and their models
peacefully zoomed across the lake.

An entry to ABC Wednesday where we have reached the end of the alphabet. Are you on board for Round 10?

I googled Zorb and it seems it is the latest thing to come out of New Zealand!

ZOUNDS! What a creative toy.
I think it would make me so tired that there would be lots of zzzzz's.

Oh how funny! I saw your thumbnail and had to see what it actually was. I've never heard of or seen Zorbs. Not sure I'd like to try my hand at getting them across the water!

The zorbs sound absolutely wonderful - both to play in and observe. I've never seen them, but would love to! Great post.

Wonderful shots. Zorbs looks like great entertainment.

Looks challenging and claustrophobic. But that won't deter kids.
