Well I really must say that today has been the most wet and chilly day so far. However, morning dip was done under a dry sky which was a lucky start to the day. We were also treated to a mother loon with her babies swimming by. One of the babies was getting a free ride on Mom’s back!
Mondays are usually spent doing dry dock at waterfront, which is when the girls go down to learn the rules of boating and the basic strokes on land. Luckily we have a great big boathouse and the lesson went ahead as planned inside. Swimming was cancelled as it was too cold to swim.
Parents, you may have questioned our winter hat and gloves on the kit list, but today’s dampness meant that we made good use of them. Tarps went up on the marquee walls to keep the dampness and wind out and the warmth from the wood stoves in.
Guides played a camping skills version of Jeopardy this afternoon and I think they enjoyed the buzzers. Sparks and Brownies went on a little hike and spent the afternoon crafting.
The evening brought the Guides on Iroquois down to visit the Sparks and Brownies and they enjoyed a campfire together.
Sleep well tonight to the sounds of pitter patter as the sun will be out tomorrow!
