Having fun on self enrichment days and events
Soaring to be a good example for staff and participants
Bonding with coworkers and children
|Fishing Derby 2019|
The beginning of a great summer began when I was offered the Senior Harbor Educator position at Save the Harbor/Save the Bay. On the first day of orientation I already had a premonition it was going to be an experience I would never forget. The staff was outgoing, encouraging and welcoming to all the new members of the organization. Starting the day off at Spectacle Island put a great preview of what our days working would possibly look like.
I was programmed at Boston Children's Museum, which I was thrilled for! I enjoy working with the pediatric population so I couldn't wait to begin teaching children about fishing. I met a lot of connections that I may find useful in my future endeavors.
I also signed up to work the Revere Sand Castle event, where I saw Andres sand rake some beautiful art! If you have not visited the Revere Sand Castle event, you must put that on your bucket list! The sandcastles are breath taking!
On our first staff enrichment day, we got to kayak the Boston Harbor and clean the waters, collecting about ten bags of trash. That was great because I bonded with people who I don't usually see at my site. Our other staff day, we took a ride to Lovells island on the Belle. Man, do I love that belle boat, I will most definitely miss that in the winter time! At Lovells island we got to swim and hike with a partner or two, it was a relaxing Monday afternoon making memories with the summer staff.
The highlight of the summer was the Fishing Derby, as a group we got divided into boats and had to catch the most fish and the largest fish to win the prize. Even though I didn't win the price it was a great time on a beautiful boat with kind mates showing us how to catch big stripers! We caught two stripers and twenty mackerel (bait fish)!
Its been a fishing good summer!
Crab ya later,
