Hawkhirst Day 3

imageFamous last words yesterday – as soon as I posted the update it started to rain and hasn’t stopped since! Every one is dry and well and today’s activities included bouldering, crate stacking, abseiling and the Zip Wire. A selection of pictures are below.

Hawkhirst Day 2

Sunday July 26th

Hopefully I am getting the hang of this internet thingy. Today is Kayaking (sorry no pictures as they went to a different part of the lake) and Sailing (pictures somewhere on this page I hope) day. And yes the weather is drier than in Formby, sunshine this morning and cloudy this afternoon.

Tonight we hope to go on a boat ride and then hike back to site.

Well the day draws ever nearer – the advance party sets off on Friday to secure the site for all on Saturday.

Remember to bring personal kit to the hut on Friday between 7 and 8p.m. for loading. Meet at the hut 8 a.m. on Saturday for prompt departure and don’t forget a packed lunch, soft drinks and waterproofs.

We will post news and photos during the week so keep an eye on this site.
