Another fun filled day! The rain poured all night ensuring that those of us scrambling the freezing streams were able to swim in the various rapids! Laughter rang throughout the hills as groups took to strolling the locality, enjoying the panoramic views. The mines also flooded for today’s climbing activity so all feet had a nice cold soaking. That said, no amount of water could dampen the spirits of our students or staff who thoroughly enjoyed each moment.
The tuck shop is about to open and the hot chocolate is ready. The staff are hopeful that students will sleep well after the action packed day enjoyed by all.
Bring on our last activity tomorrow.
7.1 & 7.5 both arrived safely.
After a quick lunch it was straight into an afternoon of activities. Students either scrambled up a very cold ghyll, went climbing in the mine, took in the breath taking scenary of the Keswick hills or accepted the challenege of the indoor climbing wall. Everybody had a great afternoon, despite the rain and chilly temperatures (especially in the ghyll).
Dinner was well received, dessert even more so! Options included chicken and chips, spaghetti or goats cheese. Sticky toffee pudding, ice-cream or chocolate mouse were the options for pudding.
The evening was spent building an orange roll tower, with Group 3 being crowned champions! After hot chocolate, it was off to bed for a well earned sleep, before a jam-packed day 2.
