Carlingford. There's really only one word for this trip, AMAZING! We had all been looking forward to this trip since we started Ty and it was finally here. Our whole year including Ms.O'Callaghan and Ms.Rowan met up at Esso garage at 6:45 in the morning, early I know but soo worth it :L The big bus arrived at 7 and there was also a minibus. Luckily enough there was 12 seats in the minibus and there is 12 girls in our group so excitedly, despite it being 7 in the morning, we all climbed into the minibus ready for the journey.
After about a long hour and a half, we arrived at the tiny village of Carlingford. It was cold and rainy but we were still looking forward to the activities we would do that day. We all got our bags from the bus and walked to the adventure centre where we would be staying that night. Exhausted already, we all fell onto the big comfortable sofas in the 'common room' but we woke up when the instructors came in to talk to us. After explaining all the rules of staying there, we sorted ourselves into our rooms. We were again lucky that there was a room with 12 beds and we were ecstatic that our group of friends could all stay together without anyone being left out.
We put our bags into our rooms and emptied all our sweets into one of the drawers (it was bursting :L). We were looking forward to tucking into all that food that night (: We got changed into our old clothes and shoes before going downstairs and leaving the centre to start the activities. Throughout the day we did team work activities which were great fun and after a few hours of these we went back to the centre for lunch.
After lunch we got ready for the water activities. We found out we were going canoeing and we were so excited. The canoeing was great, all I can say is PADDLLEEE :L:L After canoeing we did pier jumping. It was soo scary at first and I was refusing to jump off the high pier, but after some persuading by my friends I jumped off and was so happy I did. The adrenaline was unreal (: After all of this we headed back to the centre and dived into dinner because we were so hungry.
After dinner we went out on a walk, we couldn't believe how much we could fit into one day :L When we got back from the walk, Ms.O'C and Ms.R kindly brought us to the chinese to get supper and we sat in front of the fire in the centre eating it. It was a great day (:
