But after a long quiet winter, the girls were ready for some adventure. They decided to try a Polar Bear Plunge. It was cold, but refreshing.

Ann and E fashioned a boat out a dried out avocado shell. The boat floated all right and did not take in water, however, it didn’t do to well with the weight of either gal. In the end, they let the boat float away.

The Strickens decided to get their feet wet in the Pacific Ocean at Pebble Beach. What a view! But the water was icy cold!

Being that they are in California, the Strickens had to go panning for gold. So, they found a lovely stream to look in.

Here’s their loot. Those are pretty good sized nuggets.

The Strickens went with Ashley and Jen to the Rifle River Rec Area to go camping. They also went kayaking on the Rifle River, which was much smaller than the adventure in Biscayne Bay, but was still a lot of fun.
