When we got there I put on a wet suit to go snorkeling. I also put a snorkel and goggles on. The Instructor took the whole group down to the water. When I started snorkeling I saw fish there. I saw orange fish, seaweed and different kind of corals. Snorkeling at Catalina Island was fun.
For lunch I had chicken, veggies, and bread. Brandon helped me cook the vegetables. Evan cut the bread. I cooked the lemon pepper chicken breast. I turned out great.

We went to 76 gas station to pump the gas in the vans. The vans were low on gas. I took the older van first. I swiped the credit card and paid. After I paid. I removed the fuel cap from the van and grabbed the nozzle and started to pump the gas. When the tank was full I got a reciept. We drove the van back and we switched vans and pumped the gas again. It was the first time I paid and pumped the gas. I felt proud that I pumped the gas.
