Morning all, what an amazing day yesterday!! Another astonishing morning, frost and sunshine in the forest - perfect. The am was spent erecting tents - not an easy occupation with cold hands and inexperience with the art of tent pegs and inner toggles! Suffice to say that after 2hrs the children were finally victorious!! Roll mats down and sleeping bags in, ready and waiting for the cold night later! After another hearty lunch we were off to Kielder Castle and Forest for fire making and survival shelters. The heavens decided to treat us to a downpour whilst foraging for ferns and bracken - but did that put off our intrepid adventurers - NO IT DIDN'T!! The kids were amazing, full of determination and energy in spite of the conditions. The shelters were amazing and the kids were suitably muddy and soaked! Then to fire making and marshmallows - warmed by the flames
