Many of the children had to be woken up this morning because they were still asleep at wake up time.

We have had breakfast and already done some chores. 

Group 1 is currently getting ready to go caving and Group 2 is off to explore an old railway tunnel before getting wet gorge walking. 


There were a few nerves from some before we left but after navigating our way down to the entrance of the cave next to a beautiful waterfall, we all took up the challenge and crawled our way in. There were a few challenges set as we manoeuvred our way through the cave but we battled through and marvelled at the sight inside. 


Gorge Walking:

We drove to the top of the mountain and walked through a disused railway tunnel. We worked as a team to navigate our way through the pitch black and not lose anyone.

We took it in turns to lead the group up the gorge, helping each other over obstacles along the river. Most of us crawled behind waterfalls and slid down rocks. We had fun and warmed ourselves up with hot chocolate and flapjacks. The whole of the group snoozed on the journey home.

In the evening, after we had all enjoyed our dinner of vegetable soup, homemade fish fingers, chips and beans we went for a walk in the dark.

We looked at how different life is at night in the countryside and entered the local church. We talked about Remembrance Day and sat in the peaceful church to do our own two minutes silence to pay our respects.

We also tried to spot some bats but we couldn't see any tonight.
