Hello again readers and welcome back to Moppet Musings. I apologise for being gone so long, but my grandparents were over here for the month and we were really busy. We did so many things it would be impossible to talk about all of them in one post, so I will focus on one of my favourite things that we did.
For the last week that my grandparents were here, we took a train to Edinburgh, Scotland. We went to some of the major attractions in Scotland like Edinburgh Castle and Loch Ness, but I think that my favourite thing was the National Museum of Scotland. At the beginning of the museum, there was a really fun interactive exhibit with lots of scientific stuff. The main attraction in the room was the Formula 1 simulator, which I walked right up to and got third best time of the day on my first try. I guess that’s what comes from playing all those racing games.
I think the funniest one was the lifting chairs, which were a series of chairs with a pulley system connected to them. You then sat in one of the chairs and pulled on a rope that went through the pulleys to connect to the chairs, so you were effectively lifting a portion of you’re own weight. The first chair was lifting a quarter of your weight, the second was half of your weight, and the last was all of you’re weight. Everyone could do the first and second chair with relative ease, but as soon as they got to the last one, they went nowhere fast, except for my grandpa who was able to move the chair, but not as easily as I could. Then I got the last chair and easily lifted it up, giving me the best strength to weight ratio in the family.
There is so much more that I could tell you about, but I am trying to keep this a short post because Gilly did another post on Scotland. Look forward to my next post as it should be more like my regular posts. So long readers, and I will see you next time on Moppet Musings.
