A Dinosaur Adventure

Juneathon day 7 and the weather was so nice that we couldn’t not go out. So we jumped on a train and headed off in the direction of Crystal Palace, somewhere that despite living in London our whole lives neither of us had visited before.

At Liverpool Street we stopped in the Wetherspoons for some lunch where there were a number of people in Colour Run t-shirts. Well they certainly had a nice day for it.

Two more trains later and we were in Crystal Palace Park. We had a nice time wandering round looking at the dinosaur statues. They were first built in 1854 and are the oldest dinosaur statues in the world. Even pre-dating ‘On the Origin of Species’ by Charles Darwin.


After this we headed back to Granary Square, round the back of Kings Cross station. Passing several more colourful Colour Run participants on the way. A few hours were spent playing in fountains before we headed back. I did run up and down in one of them for a bit. Even though Laura said I ran ‘like a 2 year old,’ I had fun and that is all that matters.


Juneathon totals for the day; Walking round Crystal Palace Park and running up and down a fountain 3 times.

    Dinosaurs are ace. There’s a dinosaur relay in Crystal Palace Park soon – 3 x 5k, if you’re interested?

    I love the idea of running up and down a fountain on a hot day. That’s what this country lacks, fountains for runners to cool off in!
