On Monday the 25th of August I went gorge walking with my life skills group and it was miserable. When registration had finished I went to the mini bus the mini bus was small and had a bad smell it was to cramped we finally got there at the outside education senter we got changed into a wet soot, a red rain soot and some boot I didn’t like waring the cloths because by the end it didn’t help (I still got wet) when we got to the valley we walked down a steep hill it took adages and we all fell on the way down as soon as we got to the water we had to get in and climb a couple of rocks son we had climbed most of the rocks (so I thought) we had a snack and there we had to go agen more rocks and water. We got to a waterfall some people took adages so we were in the water splashing each other with water. Soon it my time to go up the waterfall half way up I lost a shoe so but I got it back thanks to Mr Bell .Son we were finished and had to walk up a steep hill agen but this time we were wet witched made it a lot harder to get up. Finally we were back at school and over all it wasn’t that bad!!!!!!!!!
on Monday 24th august I went gorge walking with the life skills group we went to soutra. I came into school and I went to reggisration and then we went to the mini bus outside and I was feeling very excited and nervous. We drove to the outdoor centre in tranent. And we had to put on wet suits and we all looked very stupid and on top of the wet suit we had our jumpers on then we had a waterproof rain sheet on and the bathroom was tiny and it was so smelly and we had to put on a huge heavy boots and my ones were so big they were a size 7 but they were huge. It was very difficuilt to walk in and now I was feeling more nervous. Then we headed off to the hills and it took half an hour to get to the hills and by now I was getting excited I couldn’t wait to get started. We had to climb up huge sliding waterfalls and I am very scared of heights and I was getting very upset I wouldn’t like to do this ever again but I was helped up the waterfalls so that was okay. My boots were full of dirty water and I smelt horrible. My day gorge walking was such a challenge and thank you for taking me. Then after that we headed back to the bus and we had our lunch and I was starving, I was sitting beside amy macfarlene and lauren roberts. Then we had to go back to the outdoor centre to change again then after that we headed back to school and when I went back home and I had a nice plate of soup and a hot shower I felt nice by then. But I did enjoy the walk and it was a great expereence for me.
When we went gorge, we went up to tranent to get the gear ready. We had to ware I wet soot and water proofs whit a harness. When we were set we went up to the sootra hills . when we got there we put on helmets we jumped the gate and we had to walk for a bit but then we got the river. We walked through that for a little then we climed a water fall. It was easy for me. Then we got to a bigger one was that was easier.
then got round to the bit that we had to got back!
we had to wear lots of stuff to protect us warm and water-proof. But we still got wet, took us live half an hour to get to the place then we went down through the rivers it was pretty hard to jump the rocks the water was deep very deep at some parts, the first water-fall we went up we had to get tied in case we feel took like 1 hour maybe then we jumped couple of rocks then there was this big water-fall we had to free climb all the way to the top. I feel a couple of times was very funny but I still made it

On the day we arrived to get are kit the gear was crazy. We had to get in this tight swimsuit and put on red trousers and a red jacket with a helmet. When we were all set we got back in the mini bus and seted off to start the journey. When we arrived sutra hills I started teasing Jenny about rats (Not too much teasing) and we started walking down the hill but I had a better idea. I started rolling down the hill. Anyway when we got down to the water the instructor told us to help each other when climbing waterfalls so we did. When we got to the 1st waterfall David.S slipped and nearly drank a pint of water the 2nd waterfall was imposable to climb but we eventually climbed it .When I was waiting at the top on the waterfall with Andy we started swimming under the 3rd waterfall. 3 hours later we eventually finished and headed back to the school.
We went in the bus to go to sutras hills. To go up Tranert to get our kit. We got our waterproof vest thing on we got boots and got told to get back on the bus. We climbed down the hill and up the water fall. Then we clime the waterfall back up to get to the field what we came thought we were heading back to the bus . I was thinking it was great fun climbing the water fall we had fun on the way back to school.
