I love Scout Christmas.
I especially love that who I take as my +1 is a non issue. Not just “not a problem” but a complete non issue.
When I first joined the group a lot of people in the district were surprised as it’s seen as an un welcoming group that doesn’t play well with others. But it’s not, it’s an amazing group, competitive yes but completely inclusive.
Thank you for another evening as part of a fabulously eccentric family.
So we took the yacht out…
I secretly love the fact that the location which comes up on the picture is “English Channel.”
It was a stunning day which looked Photoshopped even in reality.
Started windy with hoisting a Scout up to the top of the mast… But lovely by lunch time.
Went out on the day sailor and it was awesome.
In the morning I learnt to rig and sail a cat. It’s one of those things you just ought to have done. And it was a beautiful day for it.
And then in the evening in memory of #teamharmony Fidget and I knocked out a level six gym led by a 2000 and something snorlax and left it for someone else like this…
There was the most amazing meteor shower, shooting stars with tails. And there is something lovely about laying in the forest in a hammock watching stars. However the photos were just blackness.
Much as I love going away it’s nice to see these guys again.
There is nothing that shouts home like the water.
It will always be Sunrise Day, the Anniversary of the First Scout camp on Brownsea.
A day spent on Brownsea, in Mexico, Japan, Holland, Canada, Switzerland and this year at BrumJam. I have so many reasons to be thankful to BP, and those are just the reasons from Sunrise Day.
This Sunrise Day it has mostly rained but these are the best days of our lives.
Those things that you miss out on if you’re not on the water…
Sometimes I forget how lucky I am that I was accepted by my Sea Scout Group.
