Several days were spent in San Diego, walking the hills of the San Diego Zoo and visiting Shamu, dolphins and other sea creatures at Sea World. Then it was on to Anaheim where we stayed within walking distance of Disney Land. California Adventure and Disney Land parks were days filled with exhilarating rides and wonderful Disney productions, along with breathtaking evening water spectaculars and sensational fireworks. A day in Hollywood visiting the stars and eating on Sunset Boulevard was exciting. Many of the Girl Scouts had never experienced lazy days on sandy beaches and ocean activities. There were boat rides to Catalina Island with a morning of snorkeling in the coves and an afternoon of white sand beaches. Sailing lessons took place in Newport Beach where the girls maneuvered a 20-foot sailboat through the bay. The best day of all – surfing lessons!
Our Bridging Ceremony to Ambassador Scouting took place on the Catalina Flyer ship. It was a simple ceremony with flowers. The sea was rough and windy making the day even more memorable.
Throughout their years together, friendships have blossomed, leaders have been born and many adventures have taken place. The girls are looking forward to celebrating Girl Scouts 100thAnniversary together as they continue together on this adventure called Girl Scouting.
