We’ve arrived at Calshot and had a busy first day. The journey down was very smooth (several children slept for much of the journey), but there was a spontaneous round of applause when Calshot came into sight.
We unpacked, met group leaders and were given a tour of the activity centre before lunch (a choice of burgers with pasta or jacket spuds). The weather was fab for sailing and kayaking, while the trawling groups found cuttlefish eggs and a pipefish worm as well as a selection of crabs and limpets. The climbing and skiing group also had a good afternoon.
Dinner was hunters chicken or veggie toad in the hole, and as I write the children are either taking part in a games evening or firing water rockets at various objects. Everyone seems fine and are having a good time.
