Field Excursion to Shandwick – 13th August

Thursday, August 15th, 2013

13 members of TDFC spent a most enjoyable evening with Pat Rae & her visitor Hillary.  We started with a barbecue cooked by Pat.

We then set off to explore the beach.  We stopped at an area which had been stripped bare in the December storm.  This had been colonised by green algae.  We spent an hour investigating this area then returned to Pat’s for strawberries, raspberries and Stewart’s famous cheesecake.

Thanks to Pat for hosting this trip yet again.
