Exploration using the underwater camera
Using an underwater camera is a great experience for the kids. We put the camera near our traps to see if we could see any crabs coming our way. Some kids spotted small schools of silversides passing by. We also used the camera to look under the nearby boats. Someone has some scrubbing to do!
In Dorchester, we were able to look under the docks to see the anemones, orange sheath tunicates, mussels, and sea squirts! The best part was looking at the "dancing" skeleton shrimp; they were everywhere! We all enjoyed the opportunity to look beneath the ocean's surface using the underwater camera.
