By the time we'd finished up with presentations, the rain had stopped falling enough to brave the puddles on the dock. We headed down for an hour of fishing, kayaking, and crabbing, and Zach even took several kids out on a sailboat! Using pried-open mussels as bait, we caught a whole slew of green crabs, as well as a red rock crab. I took the opportunity to talk with the assembled Harbor Explorers about invasive versus native species, and then we had a lot of fun releasing all the crabs back into the water.

We certainly made the best of a damp day, and I'm glad to have had the opportunity to visit Piers Park!
