‘I wonder what kind of bird Humpty Dumpty would have turned into? Sadly we’ll never know.’

Today was memorable for the dramatic change in weather from yesterday. Where once it was hot and humid and Florida-like, today we were back to that English kinda summer. It rained most of the day and the guys out on the river were not unhappy about that. After the first stretch of paddling – about one hour – we thought it best to pull them out at the landing on Highway O and take them back to camp. By this time the rain was coming down pretty good. They were not upset about this at all, despite having had a great time up until this point. By early afternoon the rain had eased enough to enable us to get out on the fields (if not the the courts), so that we could get some athletic activity in. Likewise, after dinner she (mother nature) allowed us to play some TLL before coming down again during shower and dip. I say dip, but of course no-one did.

With only half the camp here, we gathered in the living room of the lodge after Canteen to watch the videos that the guys in cabins 3, 5 and 6 made this morning. Oh the things that technology can do nowadays. Some accomplished editing and computer wizardry meant that we were all entertained by the efforts of the Junior cabins in the making of their action videos. I don’t recall doing that before, but I have to say that it was a great success.

Taps has just blown. We are hoping for a much better day tomorrow, although Accuweather does not fill me with much optimism right now. But rain or shine, the show must go on, and all is well, so safely rest.

Goodnight everybody.

As ever…WOODY!
