A Day in Aimee's Life

Last Friday I had the opportunity to take over for Aimee on her day off at Quincy and Camp Harbor View. Since I've been at Piers Park all summer I wasn't really sure what to expect. Quincy Rec turned out to be awesome - espescially since it was so different than Piers Park. Quincy is located on a salt marsh and there were lots of different animals and plants to find. We saw egrets, mummichogs, and someone even caught an eel!

That afternoon we drove out to Camp Harbor View on Long Island. This too was a completely different experience. We ran a fishing club out on one of the piers where it was at least twenty feet down to the water. All the kids got a buddy and took turns trying to see how far out they could cast their lines before they hit the water. The kids also had a great time waving to boats passing by and watching the huge difference between high and low tide that happened while we were there.

Both locations were beautiful. It was nice to get out of the city for a day, but I was excited as ever to return to Piers Park on Monday!

Thanks for covering for me, Pat! The kids really enjoyed fishing with you and it sounds like you enjoyed it too! Hopefully I will be able to experience your site by the end of the summer! Aimee
