We did it!!!!!!

We have had an adrenaline packed morning on the high ropes and whether we made it to the very top, half way or just a few hand holds up, everyone (without fail) pushed themselves to the absolute limit.

What an amazing few days!!

We are heading for home now and although weary, the bus is ‘a chatter’ with tales of Braeside!

Thank you so much for all your supportive messages.

I will let the pictures of the morning do the rest of the talking.

Mr E

A bit different this morning!

The difference between the first and second night is very apparent this morning.

As I type this, there is not a sound on the boys corridor. Well…apart from a delightful chorus of little snores.

Plenty of fresh air, exercise and giggling throughout the day has certainly taken its effect.

Today we will be tacking the real highlight of our trip….’The Leap of Faith’!!!!

However, with beds to strip and packing to be done, I feel there may need to be some considerable ‘shaking of legs’.

From where I am sitting on the corridor I can spot countless abandoned muddy socks and the odd pair of stranded ‘under crackers’ which will need reuniting with their snoozy owners.

Photos of our morning to come.

The story of the rest of the day!

We had an amazing rest of the day on our walk, the highlight of which was walking, skidding and, in some cases tumbling, down the huge, steep banks of ‘Run Away Hill’ (named for obvious reasons).

On the home leg we encountered some of the stickiest, welly sucking mud we had ever seen. The pictures probably describe the scenes better than I can.

We returned to hot chocolate and some of Fraser’s birthday cake.

Tonight…the bonfire. Singing voices at the ready.

Very proud!

Well, we are so proud of the children as every single one of them has made it to one of the highest points in Wiltshire.

I reckon this might be the best cafe in all of Wiltshire right now. What a view!
