An Amazing First Week


My name is Marco and I've had an amazing first week. We have caught spider crabs, green crabs and fish. This week I got to spend time outside the Children's Museum getting to show and teach  little kids and families about all the underwater life. This week was very hot, but also very fun. I met a lot of kids who were interested in the crabs and fish. Some of them liked to touch the animals, and other didn't. In the end, everyone seemed to be intrigued by what we creatures we caught.

This week was the first time I have ever caught and seen a spider crab up close. Getting to feel the crabs was pretty cool. We also got to go fishing right off the dock which is pretty cool. This summer I look forward to catching many more different sea creatures.

This summer has been great so far. I look forward to being able to catch a striped bass. While at the Children's Museum, we have several fishing rods and two crab traps. Each fishing rod is equipped with bait. We help teach the kids how to put bait on the rod, and we also teach them how to use the crab traps. A few kids have caught crabs using the fishing rods. I can't wait for the rest of the summer to come, because I know it will be a lot of fun.
