In the afternoon, the girls decorated linen sports bags with 'fish molds' and paint. Not real fish - flexible plastic images they covered with paint and printed onto the bags.
In the evening, some Girl Scout Alumnae joined the girls for a beach bbq.

|Author Edith Maxwell, who will be working with the girls this week, joined us for the barbecue, too!|
Caitlin Fitzmaurice, who received her Gold Award in 2013 for her project to educate young people about the dangers to whales and other marine life posed by shipping, waste entanglement among other problems, described how her project led to her choosing marine science as her career. Part of her project with the Stellwagen Bank Conservancy led to a law mandating a change in shipping lanes to avoid whale feeding grounds. She's studying Marine Science at UMass now, and still working with the Stellwagen Bank effort.
These photos were taken on the beach owned by Endicott College. I think they show what a beautiful setting the Whale, Tales and Trails destination participants are enjoying!
