After a night of rain, it brightened up and the children were back out on the water taking part in either kayaking or dinghy sailing today. The kayak group were towed across to the far side of the lake to 'Croc Creek' where pupils experienced kayaking through the mangrove-like river inlets. After Mr Phelps informed the children that the water was home to alligators with no teeth, several pupils were convinced they had sighted the creatures!! It turned out to be unusual looking pieces of wood, of course.
The weather took a turn for the worse on the way back to shore with an impressive thunderstorm but, seeing as they were already wet, no-one seemed to mind.
The sailing group had oodles of fun this afternoon capsizing their boats. I'm convinced there was more capsizing than sailing but they all seemed to enjoy themselves.
Our tent inspection went well after Mrs Williams and Mrs Sherlock needed pegs on noses on their earlier visits!
We are all now having a little bit of 'down time' before heading to dinner. This evening we all head off to Mimizan for a play on the beach and a wander around the town, consuming copious amounts of ice-cream.
Tomorrow is our day out at the Dune de Pyla and the weather looks like it might not be nice to us! Watch this space for more updates.
