A Week Full of Suprises

The kid who found the old military button
This week I got an amazing opportunity to go out to Camp Harbor View for the first time. It was an amazing and interesting experience. We walked around the beach and found things hidden under sand, rocks, and large pieces of wood that were washed onto the beach from Spectacle Island. There were many old broken kitchen essentials such as; plates, bowls, and forks. One of the kids actually found an old military button, which I found to be pretty awesome and cool. All of the students there were energetic, had an abundant amount of questions, and of course they were ready to explore. Oh, and the beaming hot sun couldn't stop us from continuing!

The huge surprise

Another site that I went to for the very first time was Community Boating. When the Save the Harbor crew and I arrived we decided to pull up the eel trap and found a huge surprise! Lots of eels. Many people were shocked to find out that they were captured right out of the river that they sailed in. Many people were intrigued. I was also shocked myself, due to the fact that it was my first time seeing eels at any of the Boston Harbor sites, it was also my very first time touching an eel! Today we had a pleasant surprise, and I am most definitely looking forward to many other surprises.

Putting the largest eel that was caught back in the eel trap because it was large and smart enough to escape the touch tank.

Catch you later,
