Clubs' visit to Decoy Country Park

After last year's successful visit for our Church clubs' to Decoy Country Part in Newton Abbott, we decided to repeat the exercise again this year, taking the children from our Toddlers group, the Top of the Town Club and the Rock Solid Club. The weather forecast threatened rain all week, but God graciously answered our prayers and gave us a lovely day with mostly sunny skies and not a drop of rain - glory be to God! Great fun was had by all, with a game of rounders/kick cricket followed by a hour plus of watery fun when all the children were treated to a session on canoes on the lake. The day was finished off again with a BBQ and sticky buns at Bruce's and Eunice's house. Many thanks to Bruce, Eunice and Dawn for looking after us so well.

Newfoundland Cove with the girls

More fun and games today as we sailed 'Jireh' round to Newfoundland Cove, where there is a small beach at low water that is only accessible by boat. Although sometimes crowded, today we had the beach to ourselves.

The girls on Dartmoor

Today we enjoyed a visit to Dartmeet on Dartmoor, where the girls, including 4 month pregnant Hannah enjoyed some gallivanting in the river. The video shows the girls reenacting the story of three billy goats gruff on an ancient clapper bridge.

The new jumper!

See Lynn in the photo below modelling her newly knitted jumper.

Julia at the Hurdlestone Challenge

Julia recently followed in Hannah's footsteps when she went away for a weekend with the guides to take part in the Hurdlestone challenge. Her pack came first in the shooting challenge! The picture is of the prize-giving ceremony.

Julia camping on 'Jireh'

Julia also had an evening on board Jireh and we picked Lynn up for a lovely sail in oh so gentle winds the next day.

Lydia camping on 'Jireh'

Having tested the viability of spending the night camping on board Jireh, our dinghy, it was now time to take the girls for a bit of an adventure! Below you can see Lydia the night before and the morning after!
