|Fishing on Spectacle!|
Tuesday, the AABH team was extremely excited to start our first trip to Spectacle Island; however, the trip was canceled last minute due to the pending storm and flash floods... Instead, we spent the morning fishing, chalking, and coloring with a group of kids, who unfortunately hadn't gotten the memo that the Spectacle trip was canceled. As we fished next to the Blue Hills Pavilion, a kid caught an eel! We were thrilled!! Unfortunately, it escaped, but we were all so excited to catch our first non-crab animal this summer! On All Access, we rarely catch anything but crabs, so this was big news for us!
Wednesday and Thursday, we finally made it to Spectacle Island. Both days were gorgeous, and we were able to fish and play sports with large groups of kids. On Thursday, we had one of our largest groups yet--close to 630 people! Spectacle is great because you can swim along the beach, whereas Georges doesn't allow swimming. Both days, we would wrap up the trip by dunking into the chilly water before boarding the P-Town II back to Boston. Unfortunately, on Thursday, our crab trap got caught in the pier, so we had to leave it there over the weekend. Hopefully, we can retrieve it on Monday!

All in all, it was a great week! I'm hoping that the weather next week remains sunny and cool.
See you next week!
