Eight Girl Scouts in Poth Troop 2532 and their families traveled to Galveston on April 6 to visit Moody Gardens. They started the day with the Aquarium Pyramid, experiencing a tunnel of sharks, sea turtles, eels, and tropical fish. They then walked through a rainforest and were inches away from monkeys, bats, and parrots. The girls took lots of pictures, especially of the beautiful orchids along the pathways.

The Colonel Paddlewheel boat took everyone on a tour of Offats Bayou, and they enjoyed lunch at the Garden Restaurant. They saw “The Wizard of Oz” in 4D at a special FX theater. The girls also took in the 3D movie “Wild Ocean” about the life cycle of sardines, dolphins, sharks, and birds off South Africa’s Wild Coast.

The visit ended with the Discovery Pyramid, where the girls rode a simulator called Crashendo that took them careening through streets and buildings tied to a crazy musician on a piano belting out music. An interactive exhibit called Jam entertained the girls with hands-on stations where they learned about the science of music.

The girls stayed overnight in a hotel and ate pizza and Girl Scout cookies together. Some of them were brave (or crazy) enough to try out the hotel’s outdoor pool, which was not quite warm enough for most of them.

Troop 2532 would like to thank everyone who purchased cookies, which earned the money for this wonderful trip.
