The Hobbits have returned…

What an exciting two days we have all had! I can’t quite believe how much we fitted in such a short space of time. Take a look at the pictures below to see for yourself.

Day one:

At the very start of our journey, getting ready to head off on our adventure. I am not sure who looks the most excited, the adults or the children?


Once we arrived, our first challenge was to navigate the Hobbit hole to receive our instructions for our first adventure.


Then we were off! We headed out of Braeside on our trail around Devizes Town.


It’s fair to say, we were all feeling very hungry and ready for our lunch. No sooner had we finished our picnic, we were on off our next adventure.  After what seemed like a very long walk (25 minutes) alongside the Avon and Kennet canal, we arrived at our next destination and were swiftly kitted out in our safety gear ready for canoeing.


They quickly mastered the technique and were soon paddling their way across the water.

Next, a few quick challenges on board their canoes.

Another quick break before a bit of pond dipping.

Followed by the long walk back to Braeside to answer the question on everyone’s lips ‘Who am I sharing a room with?’

After another drink and biscuit break, they were finally in their rooms! Needless to say, they were all very excited! Once beds were chosen and bags were unpacked it was time for dinner followed by the torch light orienteering – phew! Is it bedtime yet?!
