Sealyham 2017: Day 5

Our normal morning sunshine was hidden behind the clouds today; however, our Hacton adventurers were raring to go.

Group 1 cruised around the lake for a kayaking session enjoying the challenges of balancing their boats - most children ended up very wet! Group 2 were on the other side of the lake, building rafts.  Despite their carefully designed sailing vessels, manoeuvring around the water was surprisingly challenging! Group 3 had their turn at St David's Head today, abseiling, rock climbing and even spotting porpoises! Every child conquered their fears and successfully scrambled both up and down the rocks.

In the afternoon, Group 1 grabbed their bows and arrows to become master archers at the Sealyham range whilst Group 2 headed back to the water for an afternoon of kayaking.

In the evening, all the groups gathered around the campfire to toast marshmallows, barbeque sausages and share jokes. The children had a wonderful time. As darkness began to consume the light, they returned to the comfort of the Sealyham Mansion.
