Hawkhirst Day 5

imageimage image image imageThe sun is shining at long last and peace reigns (at least for me!). After activities this morning (Jacob’s Ladder and climbing) most are off to survival camp with the others building shelters in the woods.

On Jacob’s Ladder we invested two Explorer Scouts.

 

Hawkhirst Day 4

A very wet day hiking and biking. The older Scouts cycled around Kielder Water and our younger members walked along part of the very scenic Lakeside Trail and visited the Bird of Prey Centre. At the moment I only have photos from the Bird of Prey centre.

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.

Saturday 25th July.

We have all safely arrived and pitched camp albeit on a different site than originally planned as the ground is wet after a damp start to the summer.

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.
