Dr Teacher tries to justify his existence

Cornwall 2006

Activities were the key here, from riding wild horses through to kayaking in the rapids. This was the holiday that saw John’s tennis gear worn for all sorts of sports it wasn’t designed for, like tennis for a start.

Taming the beast

For some reason John was given the biggest horse to ride, maybe because he told the nice lady he had significant experience of having a wild beast between his legs. As she laughed her way up the road, John plodded behind tugging at the reins to little effect.

Good shot sir!

As the man in the nice hat pointed out a suitable target to John and then shouted “run faster kids”, Rachel managed to loose a shot away at the slowest of the pack. Adi and Jackie managed at least to let go of the arrow before deciding it was too much like hard work.

Game, set, match

Despite her young age, Grace taught John a thing or two about tennis. Firstly take a racket, secondly don’t wear slippy leather soled shoes on a tennis court. As Grace left the court, John could be heard adding the tennis surface to his list of complaints, which included a shaving mirror, power shower and weather, all of which he asked to be fixed by the end of the day.

Sinking fast

As Chris posed for the camera in his kayak, what he hadn’t realised was that he was heading for the waterfall and he was supposed to have his son in the boat with him. Max was last seen swimming his way to the shore looking mightily annoyed with his father.
