Surviving on a desert island!

20 02 2011

We had a wonderful invite-a-friend evening, although it was sad that some of our friends were unable to make it.

We enjoyed an evening on a desert island. We melted chocolate and dipped marshmallows into the chocolate. That is, the chocolate that wasn’t eaten by this stage! Delicious!

Unfortunately, some of the guides “fell” out of the coconut palms, so we had to use triangular bandages to do up their arms in slings!

After creating a compass using a needle, magnet and a bowl of water, the guides used their improvised flags to signal for help. They then had to scavenge for materials to use to knot together a “rope” to pull the rescue boat in with!

Final verdict: A good time was had by all!
