AS usual we got up Very early, boarded a bus...wait, I mean a coach ( sorry Brendon). We headed the English countryside on our way to Stonehenge. When we saw it The thing that surprised me the most was the sheer size of it! It was HUGE. It was made from Blue Stone only found over 100km away. It was a really amazing cool thing to see. Next we drove to the town of Poole to board a ferry that would take us to Brownsea Island. When we arrived we ran into a troop of scouts from Britain. They told a story about how scouting originated in America and they talked with us about how scouting worked in Britain, which is quite different there then it is here. After we said goodbye to our British friends, we made our way to our campsite. When we had finished setting up camp, we went swimming in the English Channel which was a about 65 degrees. Afterwards, we met another Boy Scout troop from Brittain, and towards the evening we played a game with them that was quite popular with the scouts called letterbox, where we had to find hidden letters and place them in a letterbox for points. Afterwards, most of us were quite tired, so we went to bed and prepare to go to back to London the next day.
