We enjoyed our last full day of activities yesterday with 3 groups going off-site to do raft building. Everyone had a great day, despite getting a bit wet, although some children regretted forgetting to bring dry shoes and underwear!
We have enjoyed glorious sunshine for the best part of the week, other than first thing yesterday morning but that just added to the challenge of abseiling and the trapeze. The children have been fantastic at pushing themselves to experience new activities but the exercise and fresh air are now taking their toll as lots of them had to be woken up for breakfast today. We’re out of our rooms and everything is packed ready for the journey home but not before a final morning of activities. We will be enjoying our last meal here at lunchtime and then get straight onto the coach to return home with some extremely tired children who are looking forward to catching up with their families and sharing all the amazing memories they have made over the past five days.
We have enjoyed a much more settled night after a fun packed day of activities yesterday. Everyone is eating well, let’s say a balanced diet (fruit from the dinner hall and sweets and chocolate from the shop).
The main activities from today have been Jacobs ladder and raft building. Many fears have been conquered and a few soggy items of clothing have been made ready for our return.
An evening of good food, running around and lots of laughter ahead of us…and hopefully another settled night ready for our last full day of activities.
We had a nice smooth run to Osmington Bay, getting here in just under an hour and a half. We had the opportunity to spend some time on the beach eating our lunch before we investigated the new rooms we will be sleeping in for the next few nights.
It is fantastic to learn how eager some children are to have multiple showers now they have their own rooms and I’m sure that hiding places have been found for their secret stashes of sweets.
As we start our first full day of activities, we are all full of excitement and a little apprehension of what is to come. Initial fears about some of the activities have quickly disappeared due to the thrill and enjoyment of the activities.
All of this is happening in the beautiful sunshine and with the picturesque view of Weymouth Bay.
