Day Two - Water Sports and Orienteering

This morning we woke up to bright blue skies ready for our second day in Swanage! We enjoyed sausage baps for breakfast before making our own lunches. Two groups then got into our wetsuits to head to coasteering. 

After we had walked down to Dancing Ledge, we had a go at our first activity! We all practised a shallow entry into the water before doing a rolly polly! Our first activity turned out to be our last as the weather changed unexpectedly. We explored a cave instead and waited for the storm to pass before making our way back.

We all also enjoyed orienteering today which we did around Swanage town. This also included a well-earned ice-cream and a trip to the gift shop!

The final group of coasteerers had a go at some beach water sports instead - they had great fun bodyboarding and playing water polo at Swanage beach! 

Our very busy day has ended with campfire songs and marshmallows. We're certain they will all sleep well tonight!

Today we surprised Sue on her birthday - happy birthday to youuuu!🎈🎈

Orienteering activities!

Before fun in the water!
