If you went up to the woods today...





Well, the open air pool opened today but we decided to give that a miss - we'll wait for better weather and avoiding the first day rush (the pool opened at 11:00, but the queue was already forming at 10:05 when we went to the indoor pool).

In the afternoon, we took a walk up to Dunnottar Woods where the Forestry Commission were doing some stuff. We played Giant Connect 4 and Giant Jenga....


...played some cool tunes on a giant xylophone...


...and then we had a go at bodging, under the guidance of Dan Dan, the Forest Man (as I like to call him). We all had a play with some axes, a shaving horse and drawknife, and then a foot operated lathe. Unfortunately we didn't have enough time to produce a smooth finished product of any use, but it was very good fun.


The boys also assembled some little woodpeckers which were pretty cool as well.
