This past weekend, September 14th-16th, 27 survivors and 21 volunteers came together to spend an amazing weekend at Morro Strand State Beach for the 2018 Beach Adventure Trip. The survivors and volunteers arrived to the camp grounds Friday afternoon where everyone was welcomed with open arms by the Brunner family alongside Buggy and Taz. Randa Roo prepared a fun tie-dye activity which then lead to a delicious dinner. The group spent quality time playing board games and hanging out by the campfire before the big surf day!
On Saturday morning, everyone began getting ready with the gracious "Sun Bum" donation to start the day off well protected by the sun! Once the wet suits were on, it was time to hit the waves! Everyone was eager to get into the water and begin surfing, despite the water being around 55 degrees! Back on the sand, an intense game of volleyball took place as well as burying people in the sand!
Saturday afternoon hit, and everyone seemed to be so tired from surfing. Some naps took place, but in the end everyone came together for a very fun trolley ride around the town! More activities took place like the most intense game of UNO, watching the sunset, hanging out by the campfire and settling down to watch the movie "Surf's up"! A big shout out to City of Morro Bay Fire Department for providing yummy root beer floats!
To end this amazing trip, the group was able to spend the morning kayaking in the bay! Many saw, otters and sea lions. Overall, it seemed as though no one wanted this trip to end! Thank you to everyone who participated, we certainly can't wait to see you all back next year!
A special thank you to Sun Bum for providing our Beach Adventure Trip with loads of sunscreen! Our survivors were very excited to see that the product is Gluten free and Vegan! They were also very excited to have been able to take a bottle back home to continue using and sharing with their family. Thank you Sun Bum for helping protect our survivor's from the sun this past weekend.
