Day 1

Day One
Uneventful, sickbag-free bus journey north, we arrived on time amidst the splendour that is Dalguise. We were greeted warmly by natives arrayed in blue. Then began the long ascent to the accommodation. Bravely and cheerfully the children hefted their bags and belongings, hardly raising a complaint against their plight (not having the breath to do so)! They settled well into their rooms and after a packed lunch they were off on wild endeavour. Seven activity groups were each led to the frontiers of endurance in the disciplines of abseiling, climbing, giant swing and zip wire. Many adventures were had and I'm sure many stories will be told of their experience. After a hearty dinner of mainly sausages, the PGL natives laid on activities and games involving wellies, balloons, skipping ropes and mud! Considering it's the first night at camp, bedtime was as would be expected! Everyone slept... eventually.  Mr W
