Big Bowls Ball – Lake Cathie

I had super low expectations about this one, maybe my lack of knowledge about the sport of bowls + a fear of encountering just a painted sphere but I was put in my place and high-kick to the head with the amount of detail this guy had. It was also my first Big Thing I’ve encountered with a plaque at the bottom with all it’s facts! Why don’t all Big Things have this!! Let’s admit it’s still on the small side in terms of Big Things and essentially still a sphere but hey props to the all the little bonuses!
