Weydon visits Kakum National Forest today and takes a break from the heat at the beach!

Day 8, Saturday April 7, 2018: Dear lovely readers, today we were lead by the greatest leaders Dwabor has ever seen, mighty, great, talented Kyle and Sam . We woke up at 5:00 to clean the toilets before having a lovely, scrambled egg on bread with beans, breakfast. We did not mind having to wake up so early as we were on our way pretty abruptly to the canopy walk at the park Kakum that covered 136 square kilometres. Once we had our passes we had to walk up a large hill to get to the start of the 40 meter high walkway. The walk was over relatively quickly however it was long enough to take in the beauty of the park. Once we schlepped back down the hill there was a souvenir shop, where quite a few of us bought some things to take back for family. We then got back into the buses and headed to a place to stop off for some lunch as we were all very hungry. The lunch was amazing and everyone enjoyed it, but after we walked across a small bridge to get to a crocodile park where we watched a crocodile climb up the riverbank and get fed right in front of our eyes. To add to the excitement and flow of adrenaline we were now making our way back to the buses to take us to the beach where we would be able to relax for a good 3 hours, which I think I speak for everyone when I say was an absolute blessing. When we got there everyone changed into their swim wear as fast as they could and made their way to the water, we all leapt in and frolicked around for a bit before finding a rock wall where you can hold on and the waves would try to push you off. It was all fun until Megan shouted “I’ve lost my glasses” at which the frantic search which lasted a long hour began. (if Megan’s parents could buy her a new pair of glasses, she would be grateful). It’s safe to say even though we did not eventually find her glasses she took it like a champ and did not winged or make a fuss. For this reason Megan received star of the day alongside Elliot for his great efforts to try to find them whilst at the same time using his swimming ability to keep us swimming safely. After a fairly quick drive home we had an amazing spaghetti dinner and some sugar canes for desert, which slowly morphed into a large bonfire with songs and dancing. Once again an absolutely superb day for the weydon team and our buddies.

  6. Hi Sam, thanks for the great blog. Sounds like another amazing day 🙂

    Please look after Megan. She can hardly see without her glasses. I know she was brave today but imagine she will feel quite lost without them. Please give her a huge hug from us.
    I’m not sure if anything can be done at all. But just in case her prescription is:
    Right eye -5.5
    Left eye -4.5
    (short sighted)

    Thank you for helping her look for them Xx

  7. Another amazing day it sounds like.

    Oh no poor Megs! She will be gutted as she is very short sighted and won’t be able to see all the amazing sights as well 🙁

    Thanks for everyone trying to help find the lost glasses.

    There isn’t anything that can be done now. We will have to sort it out when she gets back.

    Enjoy the rest of the trip everyone.

  8. If one of the teachers is able to contact us we can provide Megans prescription for contact lenses.
    There may be a possibility of getting her an emergency pair?
