Those of you who have been to Ireland may not be shocked to hear this but

there was no heat wave today. Not so unusual you might think but we were promised one.  The met office promise it’s still on it way .. stay tuned.

However it was warm and dry all day – both Surf camp and our AFS group hit

the waves this morning, it was one of those perfect Tullan Strand days and we were delighted that everyone took part. Our English camp were split between classes and starting a basketball tournament in the school. Our surfers joined in in the afternoon taking part in an round robin style tournament – we were building up to a final tonight but despite being quite warm , it began to drizzle – the court was kinda slippy so we decided to postpone the final for another night – to be honest everyone is pretty bushed and we used the rain as an excuse to catch up on getting everyone to call home and then we all settled down to a movie.

For once our Italianos were on a different schedule – because they have such a short stay we want them to do a few of the more spectacular activities – so

today they had a go at the Jacobs ladder & trapeze. They finished the day off with the Niteline a legendary activity here – a blindfolded assault course that I don’t want to say too much about as I know some of our campers read this blog and they are doing it next Friday !

Meanwhile I (Collie) took off for the day with our summer project – This is a group of young Spanish kids (9-13) from the makwilloughby school in Granada who are staying in some of our cottage accommodation with their leaders – Being a little younger than our campers they come in for daily activities with local , younger Irish children but today was tour day I had a great time bringing to see the stunning landscapes around the camp and tell them a few Irish legends too.

Tomorrow is our big excursion day to Galway. Until then , goodnight and wherever you are , I hope you are having as much fun as us
