Osprey explorers have had a brilliant last two days in Belgium. Yesterday was filled full of water rides, double loops and hills at one of Belgium’s theme parks : Bellwerde. The explorers had a worried start when greeted at the gates by a giant lion (man in costume) and lots of toddlers but luckily the big rides were waiting inside for them and they had a brilliant day.

Today was spent on their bikes with a cycle to Loppem castles maze and then to the local pool for a splash – so at least we know they’ve had one wash!

 

Discribed as the hardest maze yet!

When chatting to explorer they told me Brugge, Ostende, the activity day, the beach and the bikes were the best bits and don’t forget the theme park…….so that’s the whole week then!!!!

The week ended traumatically for Sam though who sadly missed his cleaning duty due to being chased by ducks for 10 minutes…….hmm that story doesn’t quite fit the bill (pun intended!)
