It was long hike to the base camp near the Flower Mountains (well it was really just the walk home from school). We studied the map
and checked we had everything we needed, map, rope to climb with, binoculars, telescope, a compass and of course a backpack to put it all in.
It was a long climb with the rope up Flower Mountain, it was so high the peak was up in the clouds. Honestly that is cloud you can see not a white sheet.
From here we had to very carefully make our way across the rickety old rope bridge, it was the only way we could get across the deep ravine.
Then the map said we had to make our way to the Cookie Caves and if we were lucky the Cookie Fairy might of left us a snack.
We were in luck!
After the cookie caves they had to negotiate the Chair Ravine and then the water chute. We then got to the edge of Crocodile River, luckily there was a boat for us to row across in, so we could get to the beach ok
because there were crocodiles
and hippos in the water.
Finally they arrived at the beach and they went digging for treasure!
The children loved this and after we finished the adventure, they decided to do it again and again. I will definitely have to plan another adventure for them as it was very well received and a good, fun way to get lots of physical happening. Now of to think up more adventures as I know they will ask when are we going on the nest one!
