6th May – sewage

A 3 in the morning wake up call. 

Hypothetical sewage leak, tents moved up the hill, to nearer the septic tank. 

Pure logic!

1st August – Sunrise Day

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. 


 

20th February – Snow day

Our Chalet was my first world centre and will always be my favourite. From the squirrel which was once it’s logo (now only found on the buff or running round outside.) To the staff and vollies and Skippy, a cat with one hell of a personality!

  
I still love the snow, a day spent airboarding and drinking hot chocolate will never be wasted. I just hope I can hold on to the joy once I’m home. 

   
 Scouting and Guiding shrinks the world in a wonderful way. Meeting people in Switzerland that you last saw in Japan at #WSJ2015 or at the GirlGuiding Cenetenary or even here at the Chalet 3 years ago, or back in 2010 for the great guide getaway. 

But mostly I find it strange the levels of willingness to just sit and watch the world exist and be beautiful. This is not a thing I can do at home. I can’t find that peace, that calmness. 

   
 

And a last evening, mostly spent marking after dinner with new friends. I just wish old friends could have been there too. 

  Even hard maths is better when you are at Our Chalet. I’m going to miss this place, it feels like coming home.
