My visit to Capielaw was very interesting and was lots of fun. At the start we roamed around looking for plants and flowers that we either knew of or didn’t recognise, then we started to cut down rhododendron with loppers and bow saws. After that we went on a treasure hunt to find letters. And at the end we went down the the small river to look at the the different flies and bugs in the water.

Capielaw was very beautiful and I, and I’m sure everyone else did too, had a wonderful time doing everything. The chopping down of rhododendron was quite difficult mainly because it was everywhere and tangled up around trees and other plants. I really enjoyed this experience and i hope to go again at some point.
