It was wet out there

It only started raining when we got out of the bus, we thought that shelters first was a good idea. Finding dry fire wood was a challenge but everyone managed to get a fire going.

Hot Chocolate and Marshmallows

A great evening out with the Discoverers Club yesterday. Everyone lit a fire and some people even managed to light one with just the materials they found in the woods. 

The fire was good enough for hot chocolate and we let it reduce to coals while we built some shelters (with imaginative use of tent poles!) before roasting marshmallows.

Bolt Head perambulations

What better place to be than by the sea when it was a sunny as it was today. Navigation and sun cream management were the order of the day

Outdoor cooking went well

The day started well when we felled the tree, and it kept getting better. The weather helped but so did the pizza, bread and cake we made on the fire. We also looked at making fire in the wet and creating shelters with tarps.
