Canoeing - Cattle Creek (14 March 2009)

On Saturday 14 March a group of 9 Scouts, 2 leaders and 1 father canoed down Cattle Creek.
They entered the water just east of the old BP servo and finished under the bridge at Gargett.
Everyone had a great time and was tired by the end of the day.

Below are some photos from the event.
