The cadets got their much-needed break today at the splendid Carrigan Farms natural rock quarry! The quarry, around 25 feet deep and full of fresh rain/spring water, served as a sublime respite for the boys this morning. The quarry's floating dock served as a wrestling ring, because what else are 30+ boys going to do with a dock, and the cliffs (all only about eight feet tall, fear not, parents!) as diving boards. At noon, the fun was paused momentarily for a splendid meal of hamburgers, brats or hotdogs prepared by the stellar Carrigan Farms staff. The fellas were incredibly happy to be allowed so much rich food after their strict diet this week!

All in all, Carrigans was an excellent break from the intense workout routine!
