We were able to visit some new friends at courageous sailing this week as well where we played Boston Harbor charades and spent some time on the dock fishing! Our time with this group was cut short due to a thunderstorm but it was fun because all of the kids were really into fishing and got really competitive when acting out animals and activities found in the harbor!
After the thunderstorms had passed we found an interesting friend in the harbor: a starfish! I have never seen one in the wild so I was excited to be able to interact with this one! All of the kids thought it was a really cool animal and loved watching it walk across the bottom of the touch tank. Some of them were brave enough to hold the starfish and feel it's tube feet walk across their hands! We were also able to catch a stone crab which was the first one we have caught!

On Thursday we were able to visit with our friends at Community Boating. We discussed multiple environmental topics including eutrophication, what emissions are, and how we are able to reduce our environmental footprint. While the kids were interested in learning about this they also really wanted to fish so we ended our day at the dock trying to catch some sunfish!

See you next time for more fun on the docks!
