The challenge seemed to be to get the kids through the centre head-first without dropping them. Too busy to notice the view.

lovely view of the doughnut on a sunny January morning. We saw the statue from a distance and it looks pretty with the sea behind.

The Doughnut is a sculpture with no information about it or the creator. It's really not that interesting to look.
