On reflection this was probably the most formative period of my youth I recall so much about the new things we did . Learning to handle the cutter (as a landlubber) persevering with " Blossom" my pony, despite all her attempts to unseat me. The 4 day expedition. That feeling about a week after I got home to Manchester that I'd never felt fitter but really missed the challenges we'd been subjected to. Hoy There ! Happy Days.....
