Kharliyah and I were out front of the Blue Hills Bank Pavilion welcoming families and camp groups to the trip. Kharliyah would check them in and I would organize them in front of the fence to take a photo with our banner. Then I would lead them right inside to the VIP center to wait until David explained the history and expectations for the island. All of the families that I talked to walking in were thrilled to be riding the BIG boat out to an island that most of them had never even heard of. Speaking of David, I couldn't wait to work for him again. I learned so much from him last year and couldn't wait for more adventures this year. All Access is one of my favorite sites because each day I get to meet a whole new group of people and share my love for the harbor with them.
After David explained George's history and some old prison tales, it was time to head out to the boat. I lead the group of about 250 people down past the World Trade Center towards the Provincetown II. On the ride over, many kids kept pointing over the edge to Long or Spectacle Island asking if it was our destination. When we arrived I was put into the fishing group with Kharliyah and Kent. We were all pretty experienced fishers and excited to work with all of the families that signed up. Setting up, we pulled up the crab trap and found about 20 crabs inside!

This is why I love working for All Access and Save the Harbor. Without this job I wouldn't have had the opportunity to meet this amazing family and make such a difference in their lives.

Until my next adventure,
