Do you have any interesting stories about today….

Early morning next to the girl’s tent, raccoons were walking around and it felt like they were scratching on the door. We didn’t sail today because the winds were very strong so we played games and learned a lot of nautical and marine science on the safety of land and the boat while tied up. We even learned to set sails!
We almost lost a bucket, but in the end the bucket was rescued. !!!
Every time Captain Ryan came over to the shelter, we greeted him with an awkward dance.

Any favorite wildlife sightings, quotes, games to share?

Wildlife: Deer were everywhere and so were geese, and their feces.
Wildlife: Raccoons were in a fight.
Wildlife: Duce El Guck(the duck goose)!!!
