Today we went on a 'gita' to the beautiful Parco dei Cimini. We began the day with parachute games.
Then had a look at all the animals large and small. Among our favourites were the baby rabbits and an owl that looked like Hedwig!
Not to mention the pet harris hawk which Stefano got to perform for the children.
Soon Umberto came to join us as the 7th Hazelhutter for the week. He was very helpful and took all of the group into the woods for some fun among the treetops. The children were all very brave and certainly worked up an appetite as they walked and climbed and wobbled their way through the course.
Just before lunch we all enjoyed the company of a little kitten called Smog.
We ate so much good food at lunch time that we had to have a very long walk to digest it. Our destination is said to be the oldest oak tree in Europe!
Even though the weather wasn't super hot, few of the children could resist a dip in the beautiful swimming pool. Then they had yet another game of football before we headed back to the Hazelhut. Thank you for a fantastic day out!
