Today the entire troop went to Sooke Potholes, these are carvings in the ground formed by the rivers flow, after time larger pools form, in which we spent the afternoon. The weather was so hot, much hotter than back home (gallons of suncream was applied to Dan’s sunburnt belly) the icey pool was very refreshing, especially when Mike let us jump off the rocky cliff into the water.
In the evening Otters, Foxes and Lions did Masterchef which was very tasty, the meals were varied yet still keeping the scout element with them due to the lack of difficulty needed to prepare.
Kangaroos, Peewits and Curlews had their own little fishing fun which was sadly uneventful however the fish did enjoy the evening, taking the bait bread and not the hooked bread leaving some scouts with puzzled faces and empty stomachs (of fish, they did get fed).
The Owls and Swifts patrol became the next born survivors with their adventure into bear country (about 700m away from main camp), hoping to have a none eventful night with our furry friends that we share the camp with.
