Reunited and it Feels So Good

Hello again fellow adventurers!

Not only will I be discovering new and exciting things at Piers Park this summer, but I will also be returning to both Community Boating and Courageous Sailing Center from last summer! The past two days have been spent reminiscing on the great times I had at both CBI and Courageous such a short time ago, and I can say that I am more than excited to be back!

Kayak Selfie!
One resource that was drastically under-used last summer was the kayaks at Community Boating, well this year that was going to change, as we have taken full advantage of them. The narrow alcoves that run along side the mighty Charles river have proven to be the perfect spot to explore and exercise in the kayaks. Even though the fear of falling in is always in the back of my head, it's worth the risk to be able to explore the river.

Everyone say...Green crab!
Meanwhile at Courageous, the multiple lobster traps we have positioned along the dock have continued their mesmerizing ways from last summer into this one. It's almost impossible to hold back the kid's excitement as we pull up each trap one after the other. Hearing the kids scream in disgust and awe at all of the sea squirts that have taken up position along the length of rope that holds up each trap. Of course over anything the kids go CRAZY for the dozens of crabs we find in each trap. It's a mad concoction of grabbing hands and giggling laughter from everyone as they pick up the crabs and show off their little friends to each other. They would spend hours on those docks with just one Green crab if they had the opportunity to do so.

I know there will be more excitement to come throughout the summer and I will continue to share all of the wonderful discoveries we make with all of you.

Until next time, keep on exploring!
