Heatree 21 - Day 4
we woke to a bright, sunny morning on our last full day of activities !
After a hearty breakfast, it was off to rock scrambling on Hound Tor for red and blue teams, which had them climbing through crevices and up and over the large granite stones, whilst orange and green tried their hands at archery. Back to the house for lunch and we had chance to play outside for the first time.
In the afternoon, red and blue attacked the low adventure course getting wet and muddy whilst the orange and green teams went rock scrambling. A quick visit to the gift shop then it was roast turkey, 'pigs in blankets', roast potatoes, carrots, broccoli and cauliflower cheese followed by ice cream and honeycomb.
After packing our suitcases, we went down to the ancient round house and sat around the campfire singing songs, telling stories and toasting marshmallows before returning to the house for hot chocolate, marshmallows and homemade caramel shortbread.
It was then teeth clean and off to bed with lights out at 9.30.... some may have stayed up talking for a little bit longer..
It's a busy morning this morning, stripping our rooms, packing the last few bits and pieces and getting our cases downstairs before breakfast and our final activity. We are orienteering where we will be exploring the grounds of Heatree before having our lunch, packing the coach and the plan is to depart Heatree by 12.45 at the latest. School will let you know our arrival time back in Plymouth but it should be 1.45-2.00.
We have a group of happy, tired children who have been impeccably behaved and who have been a pleasure to take away on residential. Happy washing!
