Later on in the afternoon I took a few of the campers out on a beach walk to see what we could find. It was low tide, and the kids were begging me to take them so they could look under the exposed rocks for Asian Shore Crabs. As expected, we found plenty of crabs and jellies, but my favorite findings were spotted on a natural jetty near the causeway bridges. As we gently stepped through the cold water over the broken shells, one girl spotted something reflecting in the light. I reached in to pick it up and pulled up a huge piece of sea glass. This wasn't just any piece of sea glass, it was an entire bottom of a bottle marked "Chicago". The girls thought it was very cool that a bottle from Chicago made it over to Boston waters! Next, I spotted two large shells in the water- one oyster and one clam. They were definitely very old creatures when they died because their shells were covered in craters and looked very rugged. We then made our way over the beach back to the camp to show off our findings and check in on our lobsters and baby Bergall!
