The Final Countdown

teen adventure group kayaking washingtonGreetings from Bellingham, Washington!

Since getting back from our backpacking trip in the North Cascades, we’ve continued our exciting adventure with some rock climbing, horseback riding, and sea kayaking day trips! Our day rock climbing was a hot one, but everyone pushed through the brutal weather and tried climbing at least once. Some girls even learned how to belay each other! The girls also got to choose a meal and cook a delicious dinner, Creamy Broccoli and Garlic Pasta. Yum!

Yesterday we went horseback riding in Winthrop, WA, which was one of the girls favorite outfitted activities (along with rafting during the start of the trip)! We rode our horses along beautiful scenic trails lined with wildflowers and towering trees. The girls had a blast getting to know the unique personalities of each of the horses!

Our last day was spent paddling along the shore of the Samish Bay in sea kayaks. The ocean was much warmer than we expected! While paddling, we spotted lots of small jellyfish and other tiny sea creatures. One of their favorite parts of the day was collecting shells and sand dollars on a beach halfway through our paddle!

The final afternoon we have together will be spent exploring Bellingham, souvenir shopping, eating pizza, having our awards ceremony, and saying goodbye to our new friends.
