For our Silver practice journey, we went to Noosa River where our main activity was canoeing, however on the 2nd day we went on a hike up to the Noosa Sand Dunes, which was incredible. It was a step away from the chaotic journey we had endured during that trip. First, a canoe was dropped into the water and drifted out into the middle of the river and caused two students to jump into the river and swim after it. Then they had to go on the hike up to the sand dunes soaking wet - which was not fun for them. Then after we returned to the canoes from the sand dunes our Award leader was bending over the canoe to put bags in and her phone fell out of her pocket into the river and sunk to the bottom. All hope was lost then but 2 students jumped in and continued to search until about 15 mins later they found it in the pitch black water. Some how the phone was still working after as well because it is a relatively new one. This was the most fun trip ever, but lets just say I am glad it was not my phone that fell in the water. :)
