Ben A'an again

Our friends Rachel and Adam, who we met on The Pennine Way during our LEJOG walk, came up for a bit of walking. Ben A'an had great views again...

Go Ape again

Oh no, I had to do Go Ape again, always scary but fun, especially with good company to spur you on! Our friends from Portsmouth, Kerrie and Mick and their son Clayton did the high wire course with us. Great to see them after so long, so it was really sad when they had to go back home :-(
Ooh, if anyone does the tarzan swing at the end of course 5, don't do it no handed like Mick did who nearly did a 360, ouch!

Flower Power

Amazing flaura all of a sudden, so loads to talk about on our ranger walks. Lots of marsh orchids around stank glen behind the cabin site and fox and cubs everywhere.

Marvelous Moths and Dragon Flies

Lots of moths and things out and about now around the campsite. Unfortunately that means midges too :-0
