Welcome To 7th City

I am trying to build this site from my own interests and hopefully make a bit of money with some ads and I'll see where this goes. My guest writers on my other site include everything from horse racing caps for men right through to UK premiership football. Also, there is specialist interest in sailing. Who doesn't like sailing, and for the gamblers among us, I hope to bring out some fascinating insight. I know a bit about making money. Betting successfully is all about knowing your own mind and knowing yourself. About your emotions. It's fascinating stuff. To be successful in betting requires a deep psychological self analysis which can be very revealing. Anyway, more on that later. Lastly, if anyone visiting would like to tell the readers about amazing outdoor activities, we'd love to hear about it. You may have somewhere to go that is amazing, or a place set up to experience an outdoor experience. This is what we want to hear about. So let's all help each other and write away, and thanks from me in advance.

How A Yacht Broker Can Help In The Selling And Buying Of Your Vessel

These professionals may also be able to represent a seller or a buyer in the sale of a recreational yacht, or they may even be a representative of a yacht manufacturer or dealer. Yacht brokers who are said to be certified yacht brokers have not only been able to maintain and attain their skills, but they have also been able to demonstrate the ongoing commitment that they have.

Outdoor Activities for Active Kids


Kids will always be kids. This means that wherever they are, there will be some jumping, running and sweating. Now that you realize that one of the basic rights when it comes to kids is playing, you better have a plan on how they will be able to enjoy themselves in the great outdoors. You should also ensure that you are part of the game.

Keep this list of outdoor activities for kids handy. There's no reason for kids to be bored when there is a whole world of outdoor play waiting for them. How many of these games can you check off in one sunny season?

1  Play a backyard game.

These are the classic outdoor activities you remember from your childhood, from hide-and-seek to freeze tag to Red Rover. Teach your kids how to play, and see if they can invent their own versions and variations too. (And if it's dark out? Time for night games with flashlights!)

2  Take a walk.

Whether you take a stroll around the block or a challenging hike in the woods, walking outside is ideal for fitness, fun, and family bonding. Play a game as you go to keep kids interested and active. Check out outdoor retailer REI's Passport to Adventure program for suggested hiking trails and printable kids' activities. More »

3  Go geocaching.

Add a high-tech treasure hunt to your outdoor adventures by searching for a geocache. Using a handheld GPS device, navigate to a cache stashed in your area (find them at geocaching.com). Pick up a prize and leave one of your own. Or try letterboxing, which is similar but doesn't require a GPS unit.

Old is gold and if there is one game that will never run of style then it is hide and seek. There are many ways of playing this game plus you can make your own rules with the kids. Children will hide in the funniest places.

Hide and Seek: Everyone has played this one. Most parents have played with their kids, since hiding and finding is a common interest of small children. I’ve heard of all kinds of variations on this game. Sometimes you count to twenty, sometimes ten, sometimes one hundred. Sometimes there is a home base that you can run to and tag, becoming “safe,” sometimes you just wait to be found. The general idea is that one person is “it,” that person closes his or her eyes and counts to a certain number without looking and then he or she tries to find the others.

Number of Players: Ideally at least three.

Equipment: None.

Kick the Can: This game is a variation of tag and hide & seek. One person or a team of people are designated as “it” and a can is placed in the middle of the playing area. The other people run off and hide while the “it” covers his or her eyes and counts to a certain number. “It” then tries to find everyone. If a person is tagged by “it”, they go into a holding pen for captured players. If one of the un-captured players manages to kick the can, the captured players are released. The game is over once all the non-“it” players are in the holding pen.

Number of Players: Ideally at least three.

Equipment: A metal can.
