Waiting for the Fish to Bite

Waiting for the Fish to Bite: An Afternoon with the High Schoolers
The second session of the high school junior summer program has begun, and the small group is ready to get their feet wet with sailing, fishing, and other adventures that await them. I hung out with them at the beginning of the week, and got a chance to get to know this sessions oldest group of sailors and marine enthusiasts!
The latest group of high schoolers!
The newest batch of high schoolers seems to be enjoying their time at the WFC so far: Logan, who attends North Shore High School, has been a junior summer participant here for many years, and is enthusiastic for the summer that awaits him. Though the group gets along well with each other, they are all looking forward to different aspects of the session: while some of the kids are ready to sail fast, others are more interested in learning about crabs and fish, or the overnight that waits at the end of the summer.
Quite a catch!
Rosina was the first of the high schoolers to catch anything as they went fishing this week, and was excited for her big catch! It was a rather relaxing afternoon on the pier for the high schoolers, and there seemed to be luck in the air - not only did Rosina catch a fish, but Logan got a fluke that was at least a foot long (though they had some trouble reeling it in, and it slipped off before we could pull it up), and I even reeled in a little guy! They were all released back into the ocean, of course, but it was fun to hang out with the group for the afternoon.
