Storm and lightning

This week GK Experience came to Camas. Some of the kids had already been on expedition with Avril and were glad to see her again.

During their stay here at Camas, we had some mad weather!

During one of the kayak sessions it started to thunder. This made the atmosphere quite exciting. We continued even when it started to rain. We were wet anyway... It was a quite spooky session on the water. Towards the end there were flashes of lightning. That's when we made our way back to the shore.

While the kayakers just got wet in their already wet wetsuits, the climbers were trying to stay dry in the group-shelter. Probably the very first time that it had to be used. They played games and had hot chocolate while waiting for the rain to die down.

Another highlight of the week was the camping trip.
When Jon took the boat back to Camas, he was suddenly surrounded by dolphins. Later in the evening, we went up on a little outcrop and watched the sunset. Just then the dolphins reappeared and jumped into the sunset.

We also went on a short trip to Iona just to go to the ceilidh. During the boa ttrip (on Mark Jardin's boat) one of the leaders entertained us with campfire songs.
