The start of a new enjoyment

If it was a swamp or a creek, it would not make a difference for the Save the Harbor crew because we would still be in full affect! This week I went to Blacks Creek in Quincy, Ma. I spent a few days there and it was a great time. The children have minds of their own, and love organizing events for themselves because they know what the other kids would like. It's sort of like having them doing all the work, and you learning, which is an awkward yet awesome thing. Let me be the first to say, I have never swam in a creek, and man was I terrified. Have you ever felt your leg disappear? Take a two minute swim in the creek, head a little while in towards the mud and try to stand, or just ask Tommy or Shane, two experienced campers that can tell you.

This week, just like many others was full of events that were filled with fun, and new memories. Little did I know, I was so tall (one would think they knew this), and kryptonite was my weakness. This was a new game Tommy and Alex made up, when they found a green rock and told me it was Superman's weakness kryptonite. This was even better, it made the kids feel like they were actually in a marvel comic book.

Mave and a few others set out to the water to find minnow and other sea creatures. The kids were very well experienced and knew exactly where to find anything we asked them to look for. Blacks Creek has some of the most active, outgoing children in all of the greater Boston area. They love sports and also love the water, just as much as Bruce. Its been a great start of the week and cannot wait to see what the rest of the week has in store, This is Ahmed Hassan, and I am logging out! Thanks
