TSO-C/D - Day 4 - A Sandctioned Break

2018 Session C/D-MiddlesTinkering School StaffComment

The morning is filled with rushing around in preparation for the beach. Sunscreen is applied, swim suits are put on, and sandwiches are made.

Right before we leave, Daniel gives the beach day introduction filled with theatrics. Beach safety is the primary topic.

Beach day provides much needed break for both tinkerers and collaborators. We set up a base camp and set out to explore the beach. Throughout the day, we engage in a variety of activities from sand castle building to cliff scaling.

Tinkerers rush to the waves only to discover that the water is very cold.

An intense game of ninja is started. Sand sprays everywhere with each move.

Near the ocean, a dying crab is rescued. We name the crab Boris and care for it for the rest of the day.

Exhausted and sandy we head back for Elkus. Showers and evening games are in order. A Dungeons and Dragons campaign is started and a marble track is built.

After watching The Princess Bride, we head to sleep tired. Tomorrow, we will resume work on our castles and siege weapons.
