Another hello from Wales!
The second day has seen children tackle a range of adventurous activities, including dam building (while actually standing in the river) and an attempt at crossing the stream using team work! The weather had just about held for such events!
Other activities have included a very windy and perilous walk through a pitch black tunnel, with only sticks to scrape the wall as a guide. Some parts were steep and very hard work indeed. Canoe group had an amazing day, seeing ducklings, cygnets, several narrowboats with friendly people and even navigated a lock along the way – great teamwork!
The weather today has been mostly overcast, with the usual splattering of showers and downpours along the way – however, all are still in good spirits and the children are taking it all in their stride, pushing and challenging themselves too! Dinner was burgers, served with cous cous and homemade coleslaw, which was devoured by all!
Tomorrow should hopefully include caving, but it depends on the water-levels following the recent downpours, time shall tell! Keep an eye on the Blogs for the next update and leave a comment below to let us know what you think! Bye for now, from all in the Welsh Valleys!
