While camping on the shore of Lake Quillan we met Dagmar and Scott who invited us to a gathering of friends in the quirkily named Sherwood Forest on the Long Beach peninsula. It involved a detour but was SO worth it. Communal cooking, campfires, music, fireworks for July 4th and lots of child friendly activities.. sandpit, swings, pirate ship.....and a brilliant tidal beach sheltered from the customary winds of this area.
Food was announced with the ring of a bell and the pizza oven was put to good use. There were rope swings in the forest and the chickens and dogs proved a real hit with Leo, as did all the friendly people.
