Some afternoon's ago I had to experience Mr. Reeves running away from me in the Brighton Half Marathon. It was with mixed emotions that the first morning run saw the youngest Reeves sibling do a Sebastian Coe and leave the rest of us for dust.

Tess Hargrave proved to be an increasingly confident climber on the cliffs; as was Tirso even though he demanded he was finished and wanted to be let down about eight times on the way up. Emma, Marnie and Oscar were real spiders.

The Red Deer group proved frighteningly effective at fire starting down on the beach with Giulia doing a flamboyant dance of joy. Alex and Bootsy were a little slower finding their first flame but seemed happy enough eating raw bread dough.

Climbing mount Arkle was immense and the Brambletye flag successfully reached the summit. They seemed to have tremendous amounts of energy considering the chitter chatter still coming from the tents into the wee hours of the morning.

Amazingly, no one capsized during the kayaking. I repeat: no one capsized; not even thrice…just lots of Sav's opera.

Less runners this morning but lots of swimmers. Mr. Walker helpful dived in with Alex in his arms. All found this very amusing; sadly not Alex.
