A Rain Day and Exploring Spectacle Island

Hi, my name is Laura and this week we did not let a little rain bring down the Harbor Explorers Program at Courageous Sailing Center in Charlestown. On Thursday we were able to have a guided tour of the USS Cassin Young, a destroyer that the Navy used during World War II. We also still managed to check on the lobster traps on the docks and bring some crabs back up to the main tent.
On Friday, we used the cruising boats to venture to Spectacle Island. We had a great view of several of the harbor islands, our favorites being Deer Island and Castle Island. We anchored the boats and swam ashore, noticing all of the creatures on the beach. We encountered many snails, and found that humming causes them to come out of their shells.
