I think this was the trip we took out to the Outer Banks with the science teacher. I JUST got this film developed on 7/7/08! (Yeah, I know...over 12 years later!) Does anyone remember this?
That same trip. Sharon posing at the rail of the boat. I think that's Tiffany bundled up in the coat beside her and Beth Willis(?) on the other side.
