Margie Scott Beckett's
In September of 2008 I went to my 50th
reunion at Santa Monica High School (Samohi). Here I am with Ted
My husband, Dave Beckett, and I are
ferrying our son from Catalina Island back to the Tole Mour, a
student sailing ship, on which he has been working for the last
2½ years as program director. We spent a great week on
one of Guided Discoveries trips snorkeling, sailing, singing shanties
etc. with 35 students from 6th grade to seniors in high school.
The goal of the program is to teach young people to respect and
understand the ocean and its inhabitants, and we were very impressed
to say the least!
Dave and I went on a 92 mile kayaking
and camping trip called Paddle Oregon in August. Physically demanding
but lots of funpaddling and camping out in tents but with
amazing gourmet meals out in the wilderness for 5 days.
