5L – Pendarren House – Day 3

It rained a lot yesterday but today was sunny all day!

One activity was Big Pit, a massive mine on the hillside where they dug up coal and iron years ago. It must have been awful to work down the without lights, and with all the risk of cave ins and fires. We were safe because we were guided by some professional miners who worked there years ago. Ms Becky and the children had lots of questions about their experiences. We decided it was more relaxing than other activities because there was less walking.

The other one was the Adventure Journey. This was so fun because we walked up a little stream, climbing over logs and going through tunnels. How random is that? Additionally, we did something we will never forget. We’re going to tell you when we get back but here is a clue: we had to put everything we were wearing in the drying room afterwards.
