Well done to all for our first hike of the year! The weather was kind to us this morning for our hike around Strandhill.
Starting at the caravan park, we walked along the dunes, across at the bottom of the airport runway and onto the beach. After a well-deserved break, the Beavers learnt about using bivvy bags (big orange plastic bags) in emergency situations, to keep warm, signal for help or even as a stretcher to carry injured comrades!
We walked on up to the forest, where we took another short rest and brushed up on our campfire songs, and then walked back via the long grass to one side of the runway and finally up and over the dunes again.
