Open arms - Welcome back.

That's me, Leon McKoy
at the start of an awesome summer in 2012

 As I approach the wharf, I start to become filled with a warm nostalgic feeling. The dominant sounds of the gulls swarming the harbor and the intense but welcoming smell of today's catch, I knew I was home.
I was welcomed back to the Save the Harbor/Save the Bay family with open arms. Its been 2 years since my last blog post and man what a 2 years it has been. I've learned a lot and there has been ups and downs but I've remained focused and working towards better. With my previous experiences through Save the Harbor I've come to realize that hard work does indeed pay off (with a little added help from Facebook).
I recently have been employed, but not a single one of those companies felt right for me. I've grown to realize a save the harbor smile is one that can not be replicated. Gazing out the office window and seeing a water taxi pick up it passengers and head off to there destinations is obviously not comparable to slaving over a hot grill flipping burgers. I can happily and easily say, being back with Save the Harbor/Save the Bay family is a honor on its own. Working here as a Junior Program Assistant was one of the greatest experiences in my life and I'm ecstatic to have the opportunity to further my experiences along with learning more about myself. I've regained a feeling  I thought I lost along the way and I'm back in action. I'm Leon McKoy and I'm now an intern.
