Day three was… interesting. We were brought to a bog farm. At first, we were a little apprehensive about sticking out feet in a bog. For those of you who don’t know, a bog is basically a layer of water, and then a layer of mud. The bog was used in the past almost as a refrigerator (and a place to hide bodies). We even visited a museum that had bog bodies. The bog is 4 degrees Fahrenheit year round so nothing decomposes. But… SURPRISE! With great difficulty, Kay and I crossed the bog.
At first, we had no problem walking around in it, in fact, walking around in the mud was kind of fun, but then we started sinking… fast. I must admit it was hilarious watching a group of 27 girls running through the mud trying to not sink. Finally, we made it across and back, laughing the entire way.
Once we cleaned up, we learned how to make soda bread. Let me tell you, it was amazing. As in we literally cried over how good it was. After crying over the bread and finally eating it we wandered around the farm, finding animals, a red barn door, and PUPPIES.
Sadly, day three ended fast (probably because we all had sooo much fun). But don’t worry, day three was great too!
