At 3pm on Saturday 3rd October 32 excited Beaver Scouts and their leaders from 5th Tyldesley boarded a coach bound for Hull to spend the night at The Deep Aquarium with 60 other Beavers and their leaders from Lilford District.
When we arrived we had a lovely tea before starting our adventure round the aquarium. Everyone had an amazing time learning about all the different types of fish and seeing them swimming in the massive tanks. We saw lots of sharks, sting rays, jellyfish, a swordfish and even penguins as well as a grumpy fish which gets potato spots when he's happy! We got to touch a starfish and a sea anemone but we had to be very gentle.
When it was bed time we all laid out of sleeping bags next to the biggest tank and drifted off to sleep (eventually) whilst watching the sharks, fish and stingray glide by.
