Day 3 Symonds Yat / Cardiff

9.30pm – Blog update without many photos…to come!

We woke up to a large amount of precipitation this morning.

After a full English breakfast we drove to Symonds Yat near Monmouth. Some of the group went caving.

Stars of this activity included Freya who was not fazed by crawling through small gaps in the rock face in the dark 70 metres below the earth’s surface. George also thrived on this activity and squeezed himself into very claustrophobic spaces.

Others of the group took part in Archery and Myles proved himself to be a competent bowman. Tara scored a maximum round with bullseye after bullseye.

The third activity was the high ropes with Alix pushing the boundaries 15 metres above the ground. Matt was a true inspiration coaching less confident members of the group.

We have just arrived at the youth hostel in Cardiff and eaten our evening meal. The hostel is very modern and the students are having some well deserved relaxation time.

The Dr Who exhibition beckons us tomorrow.
