Updates from Portland:

TUESDAY:Sunshine, sea and lots and lots of fun!  It is Tuesday afternoon as we update this.  Today some of us have been climbing and abseiling the other group was in the sea coasteering - exploring caves and rock pools from the sea.  We're surrounding by Jurassic cliffs and have all seen lots of ammonite fossils in the cliffs and quarried rocks. 

Coasteerers have  learnt to jump into the sea safely and have all worked superbly as a team.  The climbers and abseilers have learnt how to look for foot and hand holds. 

Everyone is being very brave and also extremely supportive of each other. 

MONDAY:  was raft building and kayaking.  Portland harbour was filled with squeals of excitement and competitive challenges.  Most people had a little paddle/swim to finish the afternoon off.  

Then we walked to Chesil Beach to skim stones and chill out.  

We all slept and will probably sleep even more deeply tonight, as we are tired from the physically active day.  

Last night's tea was jacket potatoes and masses of salad, beans and pudding.  This morning we had a cooked breakfast, cereal and pastries.  Lunch today was a large bap, crisps, kitkat, two bits of fruit and - of course cake!
