|The First Day of Orientation where we got to know everyone
I am back at Save the Harbor for the third time in my life. The first week also known as orientation (Or Week 0 if you will) started off pretty good. I personally believe I am that starting off this summer with a huge boost of confidence. Mainly because I had came back after the two years I had already been there. I was hoping to meet new people but also rekindle my relationship with the returnees that I had known in the past.
Starting off was Day 1 of Orientation. For the first day of orientation we had met at long wharf and took a boat towards to Spectacle Island. I spent most of my time on the boat relaxing, talking and getting myself familiar to other people that will be working with me over the summer. Once on the Island, we had done multiple activities while we were there. One of the activities we did was this game that was similar to chess where we had to move only in a knight formation or and L pattern while 1 or 2 people would be moving in the same direction as one of us trying to tag us and turn us into the offensive side. It was enjoyable for the most part and afterwards we had lunch. Unfortunately, I didn’t eat much because the food was quite expensive, but other than that, after lunch we went back and had played one more activity called Moosey. The activity was pretty fun even though my team had sort of struggled to actually complete the game. Although we left a bit early we learned about the history of the harbor and other islands around the area. Such as Deer Island, where they took all the waste that went into the harbor and put the waste into these egg shapes.
During Day 2 of orientation, we had gone on another boat, but this time instead of heading to the island we were on a fishing trip. After Bruce had introduced himself and we all got settled we got to fish. Lucky for me, I was the first one to catch a fish, and the said fish was a flounder that was around 14 inches. The fishing trip wasn’t that bad at all and ended up actually gaining more friends at the end of the day when compared to the first day of orientation. After we had fished for a little bit, Bruce ended up showing us how to make sushi and many other delicacies that ties into some of the fish we had caught while fishing. That was overall our day on the second day of orientation. We mainly fished, sung sea shanties, and talk to other people. Bruce had also talked us about how large a fish could be before we keep it as well as how to prepare a fish and make it taste good.
