Wildwood Wisdom on the beach

Running a Young Adventurers camp today for wee Islay People. We were based at Carnain
and set up the Tentipi early to give us shelter from the strong - gusting F7 - and cold northerly wind. We took advantage of the low tide and set out as an Arctic expedition to see the wreck that
lies at the mouth of the Sorn. It was quite a trek and we got the children to hold onto the rope that pulled Dylan, one of our young members who relies on an all terrain buggy to travel around in. It was great for all the children to do this and enable him to get there too! We played nature games, made a bird sculpture pictured here....
and did a beach clean too. Oh yes, and we stopped numerous times to watch the geese fly over head and see the Scaup just off the shoreline!
