After meeting at the wonderful village shop in Llanmadoc the group of ten mothers and kids went for a walk along the Welsh Coastal Path, past a fine bird hide towards the lighthouse at Whiteford Point. The day was mixed but generally warm enough and the shell collecting on Whiteford Beach was epic! Back at the bunkhouse the group settled in and that evening Andy worked through a series of games and challenges to help keep all occupied and with smiles on their faces.

We awoke to the best weather day of the residential and headed to Llangennith Beach for some Power Kite flying which was a great success. While the group continued the day on the beach with a walk to Bury Head Andy headed back to the bunkhouse and got some cooking underway and set up the archery for the late afternoon. On their return the mothers and kids were treated to some great soup with Falafels and Ebly as the main and some archery training and an archery competition. There could only be one winner and that was Ellie!
Using the 'Pirate Maps' made on the evening of Day 1 he group left the bunkhouse and headed to Rhossili for a treasure hunt, on this occasion the treasure being some geo-caches. The National Trust Warden was out near the lookout station with a range of telescope for members of the public to peer through and we all saw seals with some seeing a porpoise! All this with the dramatic and iconic background of Worms Head in view.
And that was it - a fine residential with some lovely friendships made :)
