Watch Day Out at Anderby Creek

We had a great day out in July at Anderby Creek. The weather wasn't kind to us but that didn't dampen spirits! We had a great time sea dipping (we found a compass jellyfish, "sea gooseberries" starfish, crabs...all sorts!), doing beach art, a scavenger hunt, and then we thanked the beach by doing a litter pick. Then the sun came out!

Thanks to all the Watch leaders and parents who helped out on the day.
