30 Jan Treginnis Day 5: Big City to Small City
Our 5th day in Wales began with feeding the animals and checking on the new-born lambs with Farmers Aled and Dan. We know that, regardless of the weather, we must make sure that we care for all the animals on the farm. Every morning begins at 7:30, when it is still very dark, but we love seeing the sun rise as we return to the farmhouse for breakfast.
After yet another delicious breakfast, we prepared for a very wet walk to the U.K.’s smallest city: St David’s. We had a mission to complete, to be the first school ever to arrive at the cathedral in St David’s on time… Although the weather (rain and sleet) was against us, we were determined to get there by 10:15. Evelyn (our champion crutch walker) kept a very brisk pace ensuring that no one slowed down to anything less than a brisk pace. Despite a few tumbles, we arrived at St David’s with 2 minutes to spare but could we make it up the final steep hill? Although some of our legs were feeling very tired, we decided to run up the hill! We’d done it! Janet, who works at the cathedral, was very impressed! We removed our soggy coats and got stuck in to learning all about the Cathedral and why it is so special.
It was soon time to return to the farm as we had plenty of jobs to do! We are now so good at feeding the goats that we can lead a group! We have also done a health check on all the goats to ensure that they are all well cared for.
We had an early night because we really wanted to enjoy our final day on the farm and by 9:00, we were all asleep!
