"I shall call him Hermie"

This was a quote from a fellow harbor explorer at Blacks Creek during the first week of summer exploring. Like many other explorers, she had caught a hermit crab. This one was special though. This was the first hermit crab she had ever caught!

Down at Blacks Creek we were able to catch more than just hermit crabs. My fellow explorers and I were able to examine different types of seaweed, perfect the art in capturing a minoe and the expertize of scooping up a crab before it scrambles away in the water. Blacks Creek is a wonderful environment to really explore and discover many plants and animals that live in our marine environments. We don't need an aquarium or zoo to capture the wonder our world can provide.
I cannot wait to see what we may discover next!
