Wow what a day!

WOW! WHAT A DAY!

We started with a walk up Gummers Howe.  It was a little slippy at times and pretty steep but what a view from the top! Definitely worth the walk! Once at the top there were a few cows which meant we explored a new adventurous route to the bottom.  We walked through fields of long grass, sections of mud and did our best (mostly!) to avoid the cow pats! Onward bound we arrived at Brown Howe for lunch with a beatufiul view of Conniston.  We continued on a scenic route to our gyhll scramble. Here we put on our buoyancy aids, waterproofs and helmets before heading towards the stream.  We took our first steps into the water and set off on the hair raising ascent upstream.  Needless to say, there were a few tense moments, and yes, we all ended up soaking wet! What an achievement – we all made it to the top!

We had another wonderful evening meal with a Mexican theme – Nachos and chilli con carni followed by a cheesecake.

We have spent the evening in the depths of the woods with a campfire toasting marshmallows before finishing off with a fantastic talent show!

Signing off on night two (hopefully with a bit more sleep!)
