We had a brilliant session in canoes at The Peedie Sea for our outdoor activity day. We split into two groups and Group A went across to paddle in the morning, Group B in the afternoon. After getting to grips with the kit and equipment Group A helped portage the canoes and put two boats together .to create a really stable craft. Each group practised paddle strokes and turning and then we played a few games. Unsure if we were pirates or Vikings the groups competed hard and worked as teams to pick up floating balls and 'steal' the treasure from the other boat to win. We also had a leisurely 'sail' using a tarp and a kayak paddle - very relaxing... Group B helped tidy up and portaged the canoes back to the trailer at the end.
We had a great time and hope we can get out and use canoes on the Peedie Sea more often!
We will add our own comments below so you can see what we thought...
Thank you Ron, Mrs Humphries and Mrs Duncan.
