We came to the end of the path and I got to paddle in lake Orta, I like this bit because the water gets deep slowly and I can choose how deep the lake is. All good thing come to an end back to Betsy for lunch.

not the same as rock climbing back home!

As we came into camp I got to play with Onso when mum and dad went into the office to do something called “Settle Up”

I have tired him out!

We lazed about the camp for the rest of the day it was very hot dad put on my new cool vest but the camp was getting smaller. First one of the sun beds vanished, then the BBQ disappeared, it was followed by the lights, the other bed soon there was only two chairs and table left.

Mum and dad took me down to the lake, I didn’t like it. Mum and dad kept disappearing in the water and it was too deep for me to go in after them. They took the hint and they came out.
