I recall earning my bronze D Of E. award. Would have got my Silver but for a misunderstanding over the outdoor section. We did accomplish the walk to Ayr but due to a misunderstand over the overnight stay,[ intended staying at hostel but that did not happen] after some calls home for advise we ended up staying on the floor of the Ayr Baptist manse home but did make our breakfast outdoors in park. Miss Harper was not well pleased with our effort..So we were supposed to repeat,I decided not to do so. Ca Sera!
