Hello everyone! Our first full day in Stackpole has been spent out walking the coastline and rock climbing, with lunch on the beach.

After a FULL NIGHTS SLEEP and a breakfast of bacon and eggs we were ready for the day ahead.

We were with Ben again today, who explained that we would be spending the whole day away from the centre. For this everyone would need to wrap up warm. Some of the group took this more seriously than others, with Owen putting on 5 layers. The weather was fantastic all day which made that walk along the coast very enjoyable. We saw some of the local wildlife and were able to see the Pembrokeshire coastline at its best.

Having enjoyed the sea air we made our way to Barafundle Beach where we had lunch.

With our energy regained we then started to move some of the rubbish off the beach. The beach was covered with pieces of netting and plastic, but thanks to the effort of the mighty 10, we were able to shift a lot of the rubbish. Ben was very impressed with the attitude of the group who, as always, were on excellent form.

After this we headed off to do some rock climbing. Everyone gave the climbing a go, with some really taking to it. One person who stood out was Kaylie, who was able to climb both sides of the wall and then did it blindfolded!

After climbing we headed back to the centre where we had dinner. The highlight of the evening was the chocolate cake, which was shovelled down at a fair pace!

The evening activity was the nightline. For this activity the children were given blindfolds and then needed to find their way from the start to finish. We then took some time to sit down and admire the stars and listen to the different noises of Stackpole at night.

 

The children have been having some free time, where they have been playing games. Everyone is in good spirits and is looking forward to tomorrows activities.
