Day two – Tuna Tuesday

Today we all woke up feeling refreshed and excited – Sultan and Luke woke up hungry so were already looking forward to breakfast.

We began this morning with a walk across Studland Bay, the weather was beautiful and warm which made it even more enjoyable. The views were so lovely from the top – you could see the sandy beach below us and all along the coastline. It was like being on holiday.

I stopped for a moment, looked around at all my friends and smiled as I saw how much fun we were all having together as we scrambled up the side of a hill and ran around in the open space.

We stopped off at Old Harry Rocks and had a picnic lunch by Fort Henry. Mr Ekin taught us about how The Old Harry Rocks are three chalk formations that include a stack and a stump. They are located at Handfast Point, on the Isle of Purbeck in Dorset (which is near where we are). These rock formations mark the most easterly point of the Jurassic Coast, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

I had tuna sandwiches, an apple, some grapes and a packet of cheese and onion crisps. It reminded me a bit of when I was little and went for a picnic with my family down at the beach on holiday one year.

After lunch we made our way down to the bay where prepared ourselves to go kayaking. We all got our kit on and had a safety briefing before heading out in groups with our sea kayaks. The water was certainly colder than it looked! Mr Sawar fell in which made us all laugh a lot!

My group went first and while we were in the second group stayed ashore and played beach games. Then we swapped over.

We headed back to camp, tired but happy after a fantastic day in and out of the water. We were even happier (especially Jess and Juliette) to discover we had Spaghetti Bolognase for dinner! It was YUM!

With our bodies refuelled we went for a cool down in the pool which we all really enjoyed and then we did an activity called Statego. This was great, we all got to dress up as pirates.

Day two done, looking forward to more swashbuckling tomorrow!
