Day 2 – Loch Insh

Last night was an unbelievable night…sshhh.. don’t tell them but the kids went to bed and they went straight to sleep!!! When we woke up this morning we were greeted by a beautifully sunny day and the loch was like a shimmering mirror. It was a great start. Whilst having a huge cooked breakfast everyone managed to catch up with the comments left on the blog so thank you to everyone back home it always makes us smile. Today I joined the biking and kayaking group. Firstly we practised our biking skills and then headed off the campus for a bike trail through the fantastic woodland tracks around the loch. One member of our group who had never cycled before was actually pedalling around the basketball court by the end of the session. What an incredible achievement, we were really proud of him. After a very quick lunch we were straight into our afternoon activity for us it was kayaking. The other groups were skiing, canoeing and biking. Our group had a momentous adventure as we kayaked travelling around the island, the home of the local osprey nest, and around to the other side of the loch. It was a fantastic afternoon. As we travelled back to the beach a very soggy Mrs Barbour could be seen standing on shore. Her canoeing group had had a little mishap that resulted in the three canoeists being tossed overboard. Ooops!! The rest of the group said that it was a spectacular head first entry. At the moment the boys are busy playing basketball and the girls are busy shopping. They are busy buying all of their loved ones lots of Loch Insh fudge; let’s see how much arrives back home. Here are a few shots from today.

  14. Looks amazing P7!! The photographs are fab and you all look like you are having a great time. Brings back lots of happy memories. Is that Miss Brodie I can see in a kayak? Being on Loch Insh today in a canoe or kayak must have been brilliant!! Biking looks like great fun too. Hope you have another wonderful day tomorrow. I think the P6s are missing you?! The Upper Area is certainly very quiet without you all. ENJOY!
