To Mum, Dad, Molly, Bear, and Flo,
Hello, it’s me…Evie. It has been fab today- we’ve been surfing. The amazingness started with a great breakfast of shreddies and baked beans on toast. After, we got ready and packed our bags. An hour later we got off the minibus and got changed into our wetsuits (I struggled because it was really tight). Then we got down to the beach and learnt how to get on our board (we were the best listeners they’ve ever had!). Nayah and I worked together – it was cold and wet (obviously). I managed to stand up once; however, I was only up for two seconds before falling straight back into the water behind me, which happened to be FREEZING cold. I hope Molly is having a great time in Glazebury. I miss you so much and I can’t wait to see you tomorrow- even though I never want Yenworthy to be over because it has been brilliant. Night Night.
To my family ,
Over the course of the week I have had a great time. The food is amazing – it varies from things like delicious rice pudding to stew and a really nice breakfast. Whenever you go anywhere you see Exmoor ponies roaming about the moor, they sooooo cute. Though it’s the activities that I want tell you about…
The surfing was so fun; the waves towered over you when you tried to lift the board up (you were rewarded by the board smacking you in the face). But when you stood up it was really worth the effort. When you were pushing the surfboard out to the waves you saw all the really good surfers doing flips and turns all along the waves – there’s a long way to go until I’m anything like that!
Rock pooling was really fun and so was the climbing. The climbing looks a lot harder than it actually is –especially ropes – they looked so confusing at first. When we were rock pooling we got loads of crabs, fish, shellfish and sea anemones. Apparently the beach had the second highest tide in the world! Love Tiye.
Dear mum, Dad, Tom and Nibbles
In the morning we had the room inspection … we got a 10! For breakfast we had scrambled eggs on toast. I had a milky brew ( a very milky tea ) with my breakfast. Yesterday we went surfing. The wet suits were VERY tight! It turned out that I was wearing my wet suite on inside out the whole time … oops. The water was soooooo cold and the waves completely towered over me (like most things). I was soooo surprised when I actually stood up on the surfboard (and yes I was on water and yes I was moving). The feeling that you got when you stood up on the surf board was amazing, but the feeling does end quite abruptly when you throw yourself off because you think that you will crash into Taomi and Dylan.
I love it here at Yenworthy I am called Josie-lizzie (don`t ask) and Queenie ( I bet you can guess why)
Lots of love from Lizzie.xxx
Hi! This is my Yenworthy blog. Today my group and I went canoeing (although I have no idea where we went). The minute I saw the canoes, I knew it was going to be awesome! We started off just rowing calmly, nice and peaceful, and then we got the sailing equipment out, and man, we flew! We smashed all the other teams in a race and then the water fight came (although Alessandro didn’t get the idea of splash the other teams, not your own J) We got very wet, but it was a cool experience. I loved that activity, mostly because we didn’t have to put on a wetsuit on like yesterday.
To mum and Nathan (and anyone else at home).
Today I went surfing,(I’m not 100% sure where we went but who
Also if you don’t know what surfing is then stop reading this!
To start with we went from the sea too the coast. Then we took it to
The next level… we attempted to stand on our board (which was very
Hard). My high score was 11 seconds which may not sound like
a lot but have you ever surfed?? I got attacked by the board 3 times
which hurt (and it was only a foamy board!!) firstly I got hit in the
jaw, then I was stuck under the board and could not breath!! And
lastly I got a surf board to the back and winded myself. Pretty painful
huh! the wet suits were a mission and a half to get on and off!!
And then at the end of the day I had a good old fish and chips

Hi today we went canoeing it was super fun. So in the morning we did our duties as normal I was a server and what that means is I have to serve out all the food. After that we got told we were canoeing I was a bit nervous but excited. So then we went on the bus to a huge lake, and tide two canoes together. We put them on the water and rowed them away. Sailing is another thing we did I held up the sail and so did Louis. We went super-fast and got to the other side of lake in 10 minutes. After that we used Kelly kettles to heat water and had hot Ribena and roasted marshmallows it was nice and finally had a water fight we got very wet. So now we are going to have our tea have some free time and go to bed. So night mum, dad Millie and Kailey I’ll see you tomorrow love you.
P.S: tell Skye, Max and Tess I miss them and I hope there behaving.
