S: Josh Nova's Cape Trip
FC: Cape Cod 2 0 1 2
1: Introduction I had heard from teachers that the Cape trip was the best school trip of middle school. After hearing this without a doubt I was excited out of my mind as if I had won the lottery. Leading up yo the trip I had been upset just like if someone put out my flames, but that didn't change the fact that this was the most anticipated school trip of my entire life. While at the Cape my favorite part was going to the Sand Dunes. PLaying around in the sand dunes gave a workout, a fun time, and lots of burning hot sand to jump into. I jumped and jumped and jumped off of the dunes making it a bit more dangerous every jump by running faster and jumping further. Getting sand all over me i knew it would take at least 3 showers and some hardcore scrubbing to get all the sand out of my hair. Even knowing this I still didn't care I kept on jumping and running down the side of the dunes as if I saw the light at the end of a tunnel and wasn't gonna stop running until I reached it. Even though the sand dunes was my favorite part of the trip I still enjoyed every last bit the three days I spent in Cape Cod with the Riptides bus group and the rest of seventh grade.

24: Conclusion This trip was amazing, it was the single most fun thing we have done this entire year. Overall I think the trip got me to know more about myself and what I am willing to do and has helped me bond with my friends more than I have been before the trip. Being in a cabin without any electronics was a big challenge for me and most likely for my peers as well. This trip also got me to think about how much our generation abuses all of the electronics we have and complain about not using them for several of hours. All of this was possible only because of the hard work Ms.McDoanld and all of the other teachers had put in to this trip. Thank you to everyone who made the Cape Cod trip possible.
