Botanic Gardens and Sleepover with Les Explorateurs Joeys

Over the weekend of the 13-14th September 2014, the Macarthur Joeys met up with our Buddy Badge Challenge friends from Les Explorateurs in Ainslie at the Australian National Botanic Gardens. We explored the aquatic world of the pond below the cafe and discovered more creatures than you might expect when we put the pond water under the microscope.

Afterwards, we caught the bus from the gardens to the Ainslie Scout Hall, set up our beds, made some damper and baked sultana-stuffed apples in the campfire, made pizzas for dinner, had a visit from the local fire brigade, invested a new Joey and watched a move till a bit too late! In the morning, we were treated to some wonderful pancakes!

What a great weekend!
