This past week was very exciting for me. I got the opportunity to work the Hull Illumination Festival. I always love working the Better Beaches event each year because I get to connect with so many people from so many different communities. At this particular event, there were a lot of Coast Guard and military families. As they chatted over sodas and ice cream, I blew bubbles and fish printed with their kids. I love watching families that are as loving as the ones at this festival. In that moment nobody waned to be anywhere else. As a matter of fact neither did I.

On Friday, I worked over at Atlantic W(h)arf (if you worked on the mural you know why the "h" is in parentheses). The Ollie came to spend the day fishing, fish printing, and drawing with us. Just as we were handling out boloco burritos and gulping down ice cold waters, Brianna pulled up something BIG in the crab trap. A couple of the SBNH counselors ran over curious as to what was inside. through the crowd we watched as Brianna held up the giant lobster like a trophy. never in my life had I even dreamed of seeing a lobster this big. Sadly we had to toss it back into the ocean because it was too big to keep.
