Our favourite Brownie pack went camping at the weekend to Lorne and two Hookits were asked to accompany them. Quel honneur! Not primarily for entertainment and crafting purposes, but as responsible adult leaders. Now where they got the idea that we are responsible from is anybody's guess!
The old house sits on a very large estate on the shores of Belfast Lough and was built in Scottish-baronial style in 1875 by Henry Campbell, a local business man. The tweeting birds at 7.30am were just wonderful to listen to, with no other outside 21st century noises to disrupt the calm. Bliss whilst sitting outside drinking a cup of coffee.
|Day 1 - 7am|
|Day 2 - the evening sun|
|Lots of lovely little places|
As you can see, a little hookery went too
|The BBQ is nearly ready|
|Food all gone|
And some crafting
|This is a space ship - apparently!|
But mainly we had a fantastic time with a really great group of young girls. And what glorious weather we had.
