Syd’s Escape Diary 16.01.2009

Around a third of the UK contingent took the ferry over to Rottnest Island and then explored the island either on bike or by tour bus.

The hottest day in Perth for a year – 42C

Most of the others went sailing with sea scouts from Perth met at Escape – great hall on the beach with stunning views of the city.

The Rottnest group then joined up with the others in the evening for a barbecue.

Syd’s Escape Diary 12.01.2009

A much cooler night last night which made sleeping much easier.

Today was also a more reasonable temperature of around 26C and many of the unit have been offsite – Luke to the movies, Jess and Charlotte to Rottnest Island, James surfing, while Joe, Kieron and Ian went go karting.

Unfortunately Helen has been in First Aid for the past couple of days as a bite on her foot got infected but the swelling has gone down and she’s been hopping round the site on her crutches today and should be in tomorrow’s newspaper.

All still having a great time. This evening the contingent have been practising their English haka for the closing ceremony while Martin plus Zoe from Alverton were interviewed for the official DVD.
