We all had a lovely night's rest due to the cooler weather and so, instead of the usual lake trip, we decided to go to Monte Venere and do a hike.
These pictures are of us getting some energy before we headed up the hill.
The beech forest was beautiful all around us, but soon after we headed off, we had a stop for a stretching/tai chi session.
After that we hardly stopped before reaching the top!
When the children finally saw the 'Pozzo del Diavolo' at the top of the extinct volcano, they were filled with a sense of achievement.
As usual the children found the way down much easier than the way up and the hunger for lunch helped them reach the bottom much quicker too!
Back at the Hazelhut everyone wanted a swim to cool off after all that hot and sweaty walking.
Then in the evening we had our first talent show of the year, but only 2 groups were brave enough to face the 'stage'.
Despite this fact, the audience loved it and it was the perfect prelude to the PIZZA PARTY! A perfect day, what a shame it's our last together....
