Alton Webteam: July 2015
A great day out!
On a glorious July Saturday the four Anchor Boys plus Theo's sister Emily set off for a trip to Southsea. What a great place it was for an outing!
We began by purchasing some crabbing lines and nets and explored the canoe lake in the hope of catching a crab or two. We DID catch some minnows but the crabs proved too wily for our lads! I think they had had experience of being caught too often as they would come out of hiding to look at the bait and quickly scuttle back as soon as we moved!
After a picnic lunch (having washed our hands of course!) we visited the Natural History Museum with butterfly house — a quiet haven where the Boys looked at Dinosaur models, watched butterflies on the flowers and enjoyed matching puzzles before purchasing small items from a well stocked shop.
Then out to the sunshine again for a run about in the play park and agility trail carefully avoiding getting wet in the water zone. Time for an ice cream which we took down to the beach and there the Boys did get a little wet by "accident" — the tide always seemed to catch them unawares!
This outing marked the transition to the Junior Section for several of the Boys so we are left with only two Anchors till September when we hope that another five will be the right age to join. Any Boy in Year 1, 2 or 3 will be welcome; please let me know if there is a Boy of the right age who might like to come along.
