New hut!!!

6.4 – 13.4

Next up we had our friends from near Manchester over.
They built us a gorgeous new hut (now my hut) and helped us move the old hut. Yes, move the hut. At first ropes were used, then long wooden poles. They were shoved underneath and at the count of three everyone lifted it up walked along with it. It looked very spectacular. 

In unbelievably short time (about 2-3 days), the new hut was built. It was amazing to see how fast something can be built up!

In the evening we all got our instruments and improvised a bit, got a guitar lesson or played traditional Camas songs.

Another amazing event was 5 a-side table tennis. Five people used the whole games room and the table tennis table to play it. With lots of laughter we also had to fear for our heads, being attacked by the flying ball.

At one point we were missing two wooden poles. After someone from the group spotted them at the top of the track, Rosie and I walked up with two wheelbarrows. Once we were at the top, we saw that there was no way we could transport these giant wooden poles down the track. Therefore we each had one on each shoulder. It was my funniest walk down the track so far.

Again we had a lovely Camas Challenge. For dinner we had curry with chicken for the meat eaters and without chicken for the vegetarians. For reflection we had a lovely goodbye sculpture in the chapel of the nets and a fire by the beach. While the fire got smaller and smaller, we talked and watched the stars.
