My site is Piers Park in East Boston. We help and teach kids how to fish, but we really mainly catch crab. The kids are really interested in the crabs, but if I’m being honest, I don't like the crabs as much, they go wild when I try to pick them up and I feel like the spider crab is a menace to society, I dislike it so much. The other Save the Harbor staff are really good to the kids just as good as I am, we really make sure the kids have the best day.
Since I missed the first two days of orientation, I only know Spectacle island. It has that name because it’s shaped like glasses. The history of it, I don’t really know it off the top of my head, but my leader Fatima does, and she tells me about how it was on fire for 10 years to burn all the trash that was piled on it. Oh, and my friend Sid, he’s very smart and teaches me about the Harbor. I made 3 camper friends at Peirs Park, Aj, Mateo, and Matt. They fish with me every chance they get and they are really funny. Aj is my favorite and so adorable. The kids have 2 week sessions, so all 3 of my boys left. I was so sad but it’s okay.
Sadly, I wasn’t at orentation, I was only able to make it for the scavenger hunt. I was shy and kept distance from others at first, but I broke out my shell very fast and made many new friends. Can't wait to have a fun summer! Talk later, Jah.
