Les Thanks again for making my class outing (Room 29) very special for my kids “And the Teachers”. Just a few suggestions : 1. Going into the water was magnificent, but there were a few children that were really scared and actually only went once and some went 3 and 4 times. I think it would be tremendous if the kids could maybe have an “easier” dry ride AND the water run to go on. (Two groups at once).Remember last year’s ride, some ended up in the water - may be a better idea. If they don’t want to go into the water, they put on breaks. 2. The one thing I missed this year, was the view of the river mouth and the sea. I used the view to explain to the children about Coastal Plain, River valley, River formation, etc, etc. all of which is part of our curriculum. 3. Boat trip. Of my 33 kids that were there, only about 8 had been on a boat before. It will most probably be the last time ever, that they get on a boat again. So the trip to last year’s dune would be better in this respect. Les, whatever you do for the children, it is very special. Thanks for being that person. Robbie Noble

Great fun! One of the best things we did. Lovely 'host', nice boat and time on the river but the sand sledging is just a blast. Such a great family experience.

We had a fantastic time when doing our sledding trip on the occasion of the birthday of my ten years‘ old boy! We were very well received by Jeff, our boat driver and sledding expert. It started with a nice trip on the river followed by awesome sledding on fantastic dunes! Although it is different to the winter sledding as the speed is lesser it is worth to make it, especially for kids. Really good fun, beautiful spot, cool boat driver and highly recommended!

It was wonderful. We were a group of 8 and each of us enjoyed the sunset cruise very much. We loved the beautiful landscapes and I personally really enjoyed sand sledding for the first time.Thank you!!
