This week when finding sea creatures for our scavenger hunt I learned about something called the Moon Snail. I've lived in Boston all my life and I had never seen this snail until we found one on the beach. They are super interesting creatures. They live in quite large shells and secrete a slime that when it mixes with the sand creates this circular outline of where it has been.

This week we also got to go out fishing on the Belle. We caught a couple of Flounder and a Pogie. The coolest part of the trip for me was watching the thunderstorms roll over the water in the distance. it was really interesting to see where the rain began and ended. There was a moment when we were on our way back to the dock when half of the boat was being rained on and the other half was still dry.
