Water Sports Trip 2019

The boys have been looking forward to this trip all year. What a great way to spend a week of your summer!

Day 01

After an early start in the morning, we set off for Marseille. Following our flight, we waited for a while for the coach to arrive at the airport. We were all expecting a 2-hour journey to Mimosa but the sat-nav began to go up in the time of arrival due to a big crash on the motorway. Finally, after the three-hour journey, we arrived and ate pizza, chips, and salad for dinner. Then we went to a disco where we played cards and had lots of fun.  

The next day we had an early start so we could go sailing which was very good fun but very wet. After a quick lunch, we got on the coach to go snorkeling. Unfortunately, it felt like the coldest sea ever! After a nice shower and dinner, we played the cube for our evening entertainment. Then we went to another disco and enjoyed the evening.

Day 2 

The morning entailed a sudden awakening by Mr Beever yelling “wake up!” several times. After a large breakfast, we collected our bags and rushed off to the beach. At first, I was unsure about the sailing, after yesterday’s (let’s face it) morning of Poseidon destroying our “fun” boat, but it turned out to be a nice, easy, gentle ride. I was at the stern, controlling the rudder, which was a challenging task requiring both strength and skill. 

After the energizing lunch we all headed back to the beach with our equipment for the more activities. We split into four groups. Half of us did kayaking first and the other half rode the banana boat. Luckily the wind wasn’t as bad as yesterday. The kayaking ended up being quite relaxing and fun as we did many games in our kayaks. The banana boat made my day. We sat on the inflatable ride bare-foot pulled by the powerboat.  

Then we had a very enjoyable meal (dinner). We then showered, played cards and then we went to an amusing disco where we partied all night.

Day 3 

Today we slept in until 8:30 as we were all tired. We quickly left camp, after eating breakfast and left for Aqualand. We went on an enthralling coach ride and Mr Beever continued to teach us how to play card games.  

Once we arrived we rapidly raced to the WAVE (a giant yellow skate ramp). One of our favourites was the giraffe ride, with a seemingly anti-climactic beginning to a speedy, near-vertical, race to the bottom. Another one of our favourites was the head first steep ramp on a type of foam sled. We then had an ant-infested picnic before going back on some more of the same slides. 

We arrived at our new camp. We have actual rooms this time! We had another delicious dinner before going into the pool. There we played many underwater games like the classic underwater coconut crack. We went to an enjoyable disco in the evening where we had fun with our friends.
