The last day of camp

Slow wake up. More time. No Mt Victoria walk. Celebration! Pack bags. Find things. Lose things. Find things again. Breakfast. Make lunch. Flood in a bathroom. Oops. Very wet carpet. Suitcases stored. Time to walk.

Wellington Museum. What was it before? Bonds Store. Ask a student. They know. Explore the first flour. Wellington through the ages. 3 facts and up the stairs. 

Wahine Disaster. Listening. Learning. Answering questions. Watch a film. Moving. Surprising. Humanity is wonderful. 

Final level. Explore some more. Weird and quirky stuff. Make a badge. Time to go.

Walk back, quick march. Get bags. On the shuttles. Airport here we come.

Airport. Bags tagged. Tickets. A small wait. 

Bye Wellington - you were absolutely, positively amazing.

Day 4 - We are a little tired but still having fun

It is hot! Bit slower getting going. Walk to the Westpac Stadium. Oops, wrong way. Walk back a bit. Found it! Hot! Talking. More Talking. Going in. Corporate box. Fancy. $$$. Changing rooms. Boys smell (actually). Ice bath. Showers. Locker room. Some more talking. Time to go.

Shuttle. Wellington Zoo. Still so hot. Animals. Hills (ugh!). Chicken surgery. Chimps. Eating poo! "Grotty" said Trudi. Shade. Otters. Cuuuuuuuute! Ice blocks. Thanks Mr Robertson.

Space Place. Movie. Nap time. Mrs S may have snored. Creation of the universe. Robotics. Learning Pit. We can do it. Achievement. Exploring. 

Determination. Time to go. Great view. Cable Car. Little scary. Mr Robertson reassuring. Walking. McDonalds. Share box for the boys. Fries for Africa.

More walking. Not far. Laser force. We are ready to win!

Parents won (maybe, but don't ask the students). Dan, Lucy and Piper dominate. Time to go. Quick change. Diving. Again. All survived. But not the gopro. 

Bed time. Sleep time. Last day tomorrow.
