In later visits, I rigged more and higher nets, swings to get up to them, and other fun items made of rope. Here's where the kindness aspect comes in, because I have been putting time and money into a public playground that could be taken down by park rangers at any time. I even asked some of the ex-fishermen in our tugboat fleet if they knew how to make fishing nets. Just two weeks ago I joined my tug in a training capacity in preparation for taking command and finally got to work with an ex-fisherman who knew how to make nets. Many hours and 1000ft of paracord later, I now have an additional net to improve safety, which will then allow me to create more aerial attractions above the enlarged safety net.
I've been inviting other interested grownups to come to with us to the "secret" location. A few visits back we were literally hanging out when a group of young adults showed up. The more people know about this place, the more likely it will be discovered by the wrong people and taken down. But then more people get to enjoy it! Until then, I will continue put time and money into improving it and bringing my kids there to have fun!
