Our home last night

Lakeside after our cycle

This post didn't send yesterday so I've posted it now.

It was a great place to finish our cycle.

End of Day Two

We had a fantastic day today hiking and canoeing. Spirits are high despite the odd rain shower. We're now back on site and looking forward to a more relaxing day tomorrow.

Unfortunately, I've had to return home due to a family issue so will not be seeing the rest of this beautiful country but I know the expedition is in safe hands and that the Scouts are going to have a fantastic time over the next few days.

I, like you, will enjoy seeing  the photos and hearing about the trip when they return.
