With perfect weather and an appetite for adventure, the Sound Swashbucklers were bound to have a good time on the beach today! Instead of kayaking, the kids spent their afternoon exploring the beach for sea creatures and other discoveries. Using seine nets and dip nets, they fished for eels and crabs, and were excited to find a variety of animals, shells, and sea debris that they added to their buckets, and to the Touch Tank. 

Among their discoveries was a large welk, a tiny baby horseshoe crab, and several large American eels! The kids couldn’t have been happier than they were just exploring the beach, asking questions about the various sea creatures and getting sandy and wet throughout their adventure. Squeals of excitement could be heard across the beach when they pulled in a seine net filled with animals and shells - you would have thought they found buried treasure! It was clear that these guys are super enthusiastic about what they’ve learned so far at the junior summer program, and I had a great time hanging out with them!
