Lockerbie Blog – Day 4

‘Twas the fourth day of Lockerbie when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse (or any P7s!).  Many sleepy heads this morning but nothing like a proper breakfast to get us all going.

Our morning has been spent on the lake kayaking and canoeing 🛶. The sun kept popping its head out which helped warm everyone up and thankfully it was wasn’t as windy today either. The kids took part in various games out on the water and only two fell in!

It’s a later lunch for us today so that gives us plenty of time for hot showers. For lunch we’ll be having a choice of scotch pie, macaroni cheese, garlic bread, chips and curry sauce. There will also be the salad bar and fruit for afters.

We had another busy afternoon with groups doing archery, zip line, obstacle course and crate stacking. Thankfully the weather was kind to us again though not so kind as to dry up the mud!

It was a busy dining hall tonight where we had the choice of roast chicken, gammon & pinapple, vegetable pie, roast potatoes, veg, Yorkshire puddings and gravy. Everyone got stuck in and we’re ready for their chocolate eclair for dessert.

Our final evening activities of the week were blind trail, low ropes and climbing. Again it has been great to see the boys and girls try activities they aren’t confident about and have a go!

It was a little bit chilly tonight so everyone was glad to get back into the Manor, get into their PJs and have some well earned tuck. We had a Scottish idioms quiz (some interesting answers it has to be said!) which ended in a tie.

Looking forward to our final morning tomorrow and the joy of packing suitcases! 😂

Bonne nuit😴
