More from Day 2
Thursday 8th June | 17 comments
A much sunnier and less rainy afternoon (until 4.30 anyway) and the via ferrata from this morning was massively outdone by a phenomenal group! Almost all of the group got to a second part of the course that was much higher! Led by some awesome girls – Eesha, Emily, Phoebe, Hana and Hannah – they traversed the gorge at great altitude with bravery and confidence. It was a real ‘Wow’ scene.
Mr Harris’ luck ran out and his trip to the reservoir was quite literally blown off course. Shortly after setting off onto the reservoir, a weather front blew in aggressively and all we could do was paddle/’sail’ 500m across and we had to abandon the canoes and return. We did get to go through a cave on our return to base, then we watched the awesome via ferrata group with a mixture of admiration, envy or horror depending on how you had felt about the morning session.
Mrs Carney’s group went caving. We haven’t got any photos as it was very dark! Also, one child decided they couldn’t do it so Mrs Carney stayed with them above ground.
An evening walk:
The children of 6T explored the local area during the evening and saw a range of interesting sights… even the off patch of sunshine! It really is a beautiful area that’s worth a look!
Some comments from the children:
Cole – I really enjoyed caving because I had to slip through tight spaces and jump down small holes.
Ayaan – I really enjoyed the via ferrata because I could just lean and put my full body on the wire without falling off.
Daisy – I found the Canoeing very enjoyable because I was quite good at it and could go fast. But my favourite activity was Gorge Walking because I kept falling on my back and floating all around.
Navroop – I really liked Tom Taylor’s cave because there was a miniature slide.
