Terrific Tuesday

Terrific Tuesdays, definitely was terrific today!

3 very interesting contrasting days for our 4 groups today. First two groups headed over to Cable Bay to enjoy the sunshine whilst scrambling along the rocky sea cliffs and crossing over sections of the sea on tyroleans. Its fair to say, bit of a scary day for some, and surprising they stayed dry. Well almost.

The 3rd group headed out the Gerionwydd to partake in a bit of gorge scrambling, ducking under waterfalls and swimming under bridges. Pushing themselves out of their comfort zones and realising how capable they all are. The group worked excellent together all helping each other out a different sections, making new friends and showing what excellent team work skills they have.

The waterfall might be a little bit cold.

And our final group went on a journey of discovery down in the Rhiwbach slate mines to see what life was like for the 18th century miners of north wales. Here they looked at some of the old mining tools, and had a little practice with them. They also found out what it is really like not being able to see anything, as we turned our torches off 300m underground, where no light from outside could interfere. 
 
Nice romantic candle lit lunch.
 
Nice bit of natural face moisturiser.
