with Past Finders and Watch Group
A Falkland Islands tradition is teaberry picking, so along with the Watch Group, the Pastfinders made their way to Cape Pembroke to begin filling their tubs with the sweet berries.
It was a windy start to the day but it wasn't long before the group got down to picking the berries from the abundance covering the ground. The group picked berries as they made their way to the lighthouse, stopping to look at plants as they went. The group found quite a few arrow-leaved marigolds on their walk.
The group had fun running up sand dunes, exploring craters and finding puddles. After arriving at the lighthouse the group had a quick photo before heading over to the south side for shelter in the little cove. By this time everyone was hungry so tucked in to their sandwiches and treats.
There was then huge excitement when the group spotted a whale blowing out at sea off the point. The children then enjoyed playing in the water pools, clambering around the rocks and enjoying each other’s company. Before long it was time to head back to the car park.
Sandra handed out some recipes for everyone to take home so they could try their hand at making some teaberry buns. Soon after the children were cooking up a storm at home putting photos of their cooked buns and pavlova on the Past Finder Facebook page. Well done guys you did an amazing job!
Thank you to all volunteers your help is always appreciated.
Another fantastic outing!
