Blue Group - Sean, Elle. Grace B, Amos, Kaiden, Calum, Maeva, Brandon, Keaton and Cody.
Today the rain came... and it did not stop!
However, thankfully this was not a problem for the blue group as today we went Mining. We travelled for 45 minutes on the mini bus until we finally arrived at the mine. The children got excited as they thought it was that simple... unfortunately not we had to climb up a steep mountain - a good 30 minute climb until we reached the actual mine.
FINALLY we were able to see the mine! We entered the mine through what was the smallest entrance, for the children it was simple for me not so much! The children had hard helmets with torches attached and we began our walk through the mine! Cody was especially brave - he overcame his fears and impressed both me and Mel throughout, well done Cody.
We walked for a while until we reached a vast pool, Mel left us and returned with a boat. Brandon instantly announced he would not be going on the boat and this wasn't ok! However once we explained the only way across was the boat he soon jumped on, well done Brandon!
We then reached a passing which meant we had to use our carabinas. This was worry for the children- however they were all amazing and were successfully able to unclip and re-clip all the way across!
We then sat and enjoyed our lunch on the mine floor. Calum had thankfully carried our hot chocolate the entire journey so he was happy when this got shared out, Thank you Calum for being so helpful.
We climbed the rest of the mine and then started our walk down, another 30 minutes in the rain, but no moaning about the weather which is always good!
I am so impressed with all of Blue team! They are all doing so well!
Tomorrow is our last full day, fingers crossed the weather improves!
