Snow in March

Today we went on a 25km walk near Dorking, Surrey. It was our navigational training and as gold Duke of Edinburgh ‘explorers,’ we were thrown in the deep end with a map and compass.

The weather was appalling. It rained for the majority of the day and when it wasn’t raining, it was hailing or snowing, in March!

Highlights of the day:
1) Standing at the top of the hills watching the snow fall on the fields and watching a train go by
2) When a woman in a car stopped to ask us for directions. What sane person stops to ask DofE kids, completely soaking wet, where to go?!
3) Getting lost in a Forest and pricking a path because Will ‘feels’ that it’s the right way

Without my group, I’d be lost. I love every single one of them. Bring on Gold!!
