Sunday came around a little too quickly! Ellie, our youngest explorer (age 2…Cery’s daughter), decided to get us all up around 5.30. Given that Jenny didn’t allow us to go to sleep until around 2.30am…meant that motivating our breakfast cook team was not an easy task!. That said, a full cooked lard special was duly delivered, eaten and washed up by 9am.
Activities started around 9.30 and saw the Unit split into groups. Group 1 scaled a massive climbing wall reaching the “walkway of doom” – a wobbly bridge, the leap of death, the slippery pole, the cargo net and the monkey’s tails. Anyone achieving part or all of this challenge can consider themselves having nerves of steel. Group 2 had a session on the 3G Swing…a two-seater catapult that fired the occupants towards the moon…twice! An excellent morning.
The afternoon saw us again in two groups – climbing and Jacobs Ladder. A challenge from Phoenix Explorers (north London) to a game of rugby was laid down and will happen later in the week.
Osama and team (Jenny and Big Eth) put together a full Sunday roast dinner for us all- roast beef, yorkshire pud, roast spuds and assorted veg and then an evening of Giant Jenga, Giant Connect 4 or a session on the guitars then ensued.
