Yesterday we spent the day scooting around town in spotty onesies. It was incredibly fun and we got some funny looks, but it was all in aid of a great cause – Sport relief. Check out our post about the Team Honk Relay coming to Dorset for more information.
The baton was passed to us outside Tesco in our local town. The awesome Sonya and Lynn rocked up in fab pink wigs and passed the ribboned baton and slightly soggy and squished Lands End to John O Groats sign. I really hope the sign makes it all the way to the finish line!
We then hopped on our fab Micro Scooter, which was very kindly provided to help us complete our leg. The scooter got us round town pretty quickly, so we decided to visit our local skate park to pull off some tricks with the baton. I use tricks lightly, I managed to scoot down a few ramps and attempted a grind. But I didn’t want to show up the rest of the Team Honkers who are taking to scooters over the next few weeks. Our little man got in on the scooting action and showed us he is a natural pro, I think it’s time to get him his own scooter. He will be challenging me to tricks in now time.
After scooting back to our car, we sped off to Badbury Rings whilst enjoying a mini car picnic. Once at Badbury rings we realised we would have to swap canvas trainers for full on walking boots as the rain had created a mass muddy swamp surrounding the rings. The wind picked up and we battled on, we were incredibly proud of our little man for climbing all the way to the top of the rings and back without assistance.
M’s Nanna and Grandpa came along to offer support for our section of the relay. Once at the top of Badbury Rings my dad suggested we find a nearby geocache. So off we went through mud and trees to locate the cache. So we can proudly say it’s probably the first baton to ever find a geocache.
Not wanting to pass up a muddy puddle splashing session, our little man made sure he gave the puddles on top of Badbury Rings a jolly good splash. This did require a change of clothes, but we always come prepared!
After making it back to the car and warming up, we heading on to Wimborne to pass the baton to Joanne. We were met at Wimborne Minster by Joanne and her family, where we said goodbye to the baton and wished Joanne good luck on her 7 mile cycle. Joanne hands the baton to Kara today for a tour of Bournemouth and Poole. There is still time to donate to Team Honk help our team reach our £500 target.
