Run at Mare aux Songes in the grounds of Mon
Tresor Mon Desert Sugar Estate. Hares Alan "Strong On" and Sara "Coffee
Mate". Alan entitled this run "The Dodo & Treasure Trail"
and issued an explanatory brochure to enlighten the more ignorant among us of
a brief history of the Dodo and the discovery of skeletal remains.
(A reproduction of his brochure is included - Click here - Then "Back" on your Browser to return here).
The trail was interesting and varied, covering hot sugar cane fields, wooded areas and some sandy beach with a nice sea breeze. Alan had promised us a series of lectures on our way round the trail but was too busy impatiently jogging on the spot and hinting to everyone where to find the right trail, that he forgot all about the history lessons. He did however lead us to a rock at the edge of the sea which is inscribed with instructions to find buried treasure (none found however).
On our way back we were led to a 'wine dump' (much better than our usual visit to a rubbish dump), where he had dissimulated small bottles of wine specially ticketed for the occasion.
