A couple days ago, I went on a school trip to Toyon Bay, Catalina Island. I had an amazing time from the minute we arrived. That morning, I had to get up a 5 am and get ready for the bus. After a couple hours on the bus we arrived in Long Beach and went onto the Catalina Classic. Our boat ride to Catalina was about 2 hours and on the way, I watched the beautiful view of the island. It was really special to have our school teachers accompany us as chaperons on this trip.
In my bunk we had 10 girls, and during our free time, we played a card game called Gumpsh. It is a silly game played with six people. Each team of two must communicate through a secret code in to get four of the same cards in order to win. We also had fun doing each other's hair and just having girl time. Its too bad it all became messed up when we woke up the next morning.

The next morning, we went to pet sharks, sting rays, and many other interesting sea creatures. The tank contained small sharks and stingrays that we were allowed to touch. In fact, the tank contained the same leopard sharks that we swam with the day before. This trip was one of the best school trips yet, and I hope one day that I will be able to go back to Catalina.
