Back at it! Year 3 Im ready Im ready:)


      Whoop whoop!! I’m back for yet another year with Save the Harbor. I should probably introduce myself, I’m Jasmine and this is my third year with SHSB and I’m super excited for it. This year I have the amazing opportunity of being a part of an amazing group and this past week we were at Revere beach, short beach, and . We started off the week at a short beach which was very interesting because the beach was full of rocks and a lot of flies and there was a huge amount of seaweed on the beach and the smell wasn’t super pleasant. From there we moved to Revere beach where we walked along the beach looking for bivalves and looking at different animals we could find along the shoreline. We found crabs, clams, we even saw a group of ducks swimming and diving in the water. As we continued to walk along the beach we even had the opportunity to watch a seagull throwing a clam from high up in the air in an attempt to get it to open up so that it could eat the insides. We also had the opportunity to go to a marsh, although I’ve got to admit it looked like something picked out of a horror movie. As we walked through the marsh we were being attacked by mosquitos looking for any opening to our skin, we then saw what looked like an eagle and it was eating a squirrel. We got to experience all of this but the best part of it all was getting to know my group. Even though some of us just met I feel like we connected and created such a fun environment rather quickly. It is never a boring moment among these amazing people and I’m glad that I’ll have the opportunity to get to spend the summer with them and get to know them more. I’m glad to be back and I’m ready to make the most out of this summer!
