Our earth was thirsty and Mother Nature decided to give it a drink. It began to rain just as we opened the parking lot for the arrival of our Wild and Wacky week campers. All was well as they pulled out their rain jackets and we covered their luggage. Delivery was set for each marquee to keep the bags dry until the rain let up a little; no one wants to start the week off with wet belongings. Everyone had lunch and then enjoyed a hike around camp for the Camp Tour Challenge in the misty weather. The roads and trails of Wa-Thik-Ane have so many tales and so much history to offer.
Sparks and Brownies kept busy with the challenge of wearing their clothing backwards as they learned a little about compasses before heading off on their hike.
Guides began a multi-step placemat making process. They started by creating a design with glue and will later tie-dye them. If it works as it should, the spots where there is glue will stay dye-free and the whole thing will look really neat. More pictures to come!
By 2:30 pm, the rain had stopped and the sky was trying to brighten. I headed down to wipe off the picnic tables and set up for our evening barbecue. We enjoyed salads, veggies, burgers and chips under sunny patches with lots of conversation. It was topped off with campfires at each site and some wonderful singing voices. My favourite part of the day is always hearing the happy voices singing around campfires as I finish up the day in my nest.
