Alderwood Middle School – Day 2

Trip Day: Day 2

Location: Orcas Island

Name(s): Jackson and Andrew

School/Grade: 7th/8th

The day dawned in spectacular calm as the sun illuminated Mt. Baker along the eastern horizon. It was a quiet and easy night which permeated through the focsle of the boat and through the many tents pitched near the shoreline.

Once the student shore crew had packed up the tents and their gear, they joined the student boat crew for another day of science and sailing.
The captain helped the students set sight for the trip up into Deer Harbor on Orcas Island.

The Afternoon Report was provided by Jackson and Andrew.

The Carlyn is at Camp 4 Winds at Orcas Island on a dock and we are looking at it.
The weather today was mostly cloudy with a few breaks of blue sky. The water is calm and there is no wind.
The highlights from today included seeing lots of jellyfish and looking at plankton through a microscope and we learned about how to navigate on a boat.

Tomorrow we are hoping for more clear skies and calm water and above all to have fun.

I think the main cabin on boats is cool because it looks small but it can fit a lot of us.
