Nautical Day

Yesterday was the last day at Blacks Creek for the summer, and I'm glad I had the opportunity to be there on that day.

Michelle had this awesome plan to get the families at nautical to go on a scavenger hunt for things we have been catching at the site all year long. Unfortunately, we arrived there only to find the tide super high, the highest it has been all summer long. with the beach gone and no where left to search for critters, we had to come up with a new plan. We set up a crab trap on the dock and caught a ton of green crabs in no time with our hot dog bait. With that, we set up a touch-tank and attracted a lot of interested families. A couple of the girls we had been working with since day one, Maria and Rachael stuck around the entire time. We also had a few younger kids, hopefully future campers, that hung around with us for a while. One of then was 4 year old Matty, he was so brave.

It was a great last day at Blacks Creek, a lot of the parents came up to us and thanked us for giving their kids a great summer. The kids were all amazing at blacks creek, and I hope to see them again next summer.
