Our Girl Scout troop spent the weekend in San Francisco! It was a long anticipated big trip for these fifth graders and a great way to spend their cookie money. After MUCH debate the girls decided they wanted to visit the Academy of Sciences and Chinatown. Both were wonderful.
We arrived Saturday and went right into the Academy for a fabulous afternoon. We spent the night at a Girl Scout property in the Southern part of the city. It was a bit rustic but the price was right for a big group. Sunday we headed into Chinatown and after photos at the Dragon Gate we visited the Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Factory and had dim sum at City View (both were fabulous). The girls did some shopping along Grant street and it was 3 pm and time to head home. Tired and happy after many new experiences.
(Oh, and this was cool, we got off the bus and they were filming a car commercial so we stayed and watched. It was quite exciting and the background actors were nicely dressed)
It rained all night but both days were sunny and gorgeous. Totally lucky.
Paid $0.50 for this photo--they asked for payment for photos. Fair enough the machine was so cool!
