|Aboard the Provincetown II for the Youth Partners Brunch!|
It is important to me to get kids out to the ocean to understand what a unique source Boston Harbor really is. I have been fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to grow up in the North Shore Boston area. Long strips of clean, sandy beaches, thick shorelines of tall sea grass, abundant sea critters crawling along the shoreline, and active families and boaters have created an environment where humans and sea life can exist together. My family and I-my sister, brother, mom and dad (and the two dogs of course, Moxie and Bailey)- spend the weekends on our Boston Whaler, our home away from home. Beacon and Gloucester Harbor have brought my family together in a sense, providing us with a source of entertainment, fun, and relaxation that we can all enjoy. We wake up to the piping of seagulls, the hum of the sea breeze, and the hushed splashes of small fish. I usually spend my afternoons knee deep in a book (as of now its The Kite Runner), while my brother and dad fish off the bow of our be-loved sea vessel, named "Worthless Crew"-hence me sitting lazily in a beach chair enjoying my novel!
I attended my first Save the Harbor event this week- a brunch aboard the Provincetown II. I was excited to hear Bruce and Patty speak about what else this summer has in store for the staff and the Boston youths and teens!
