Last week we went to Hoy. We were split into two groups group one going from Monday morning to Wednesday after noon and the second group going Wednesday morning and leaving Friday night. When group two arrived we got a tour of the hostel and then split up into groups. One of the groups went canoeing and the other went for a walk. After we finished we all met back at the hotel the canoers were all really cold but had had a good time and the walkers had freezing feet but had really enjoyed the walk. Soon after we found out which rooms we were staying and who with. That night we had pizza and sticky toffee pudding for tea a little while after we got plain and chocolate cake because it was Jack’s birthday and that night we watched swallows and amazons while we had hot chocolate, biscuits and toast.
The next day we woke up and it was horrible weather raining and really windy but that just made the day much better. We started by having breakfast and making our pack lunches then we went for a gorge walk. That day we all split up into three groups but we all did the same activities at the same time. The gorge walk was really wet and there were a lot of big jumps and water falls there was one so big we needed a rope to go down. After that we went back to the hostel and had our lunch and then went to bush craft. We all made shelters out of logs and branches we found on the ground then we gathered some more and made a fire to roast marshmallows on. At the end of the day we all went to the hostel and had roast chicken for tea with chocolate muffin for pudding and ice cream.
That night while we were having hot chocolate, biscuits and toast we watched Madagascar. The next day was our last day. We were back in our two groups that we were in the first day and while the first group did archery the other did canoeing. We all came back for lunch and had all really enjoyed ourselves but there was still fun to come. That afternoon the first group went for the walk and the second group did archery. We all came back and had all loved our time in hoy but we all were really sad to leave. We really hope we can do something like it again soon. Jack and Daisy
