Do you have any interesting stories about today….

 Today it was raining really hard and you couldn’t see the waves because there was so much rain. Then after about 2 hours it all of a sudden stopped and for the rest of the day, it was sunny.

Any favorite wildlife sightings, quotes, games to share?

Today someone saw a deer at James Island and it was much camouflaged and they could hardly see it.

Describe the anchorage or moorage where Carlyn is right now:

There is a big bay and the water is very clear and there is a small amphitheater that we are going to do a talent show in! It also is the camp for summer. There is a beach then the trees come to a forest. On the left is a nice lawn with a big building and on the right is a little path that has a green house on it.

Today’s weather:

It was cloudy in the morning and then it started to drizzle. After that it rained really hard. Then after 2 hours of raining it all of a sudden stopped. It was a little cloudy but by the end of the day it cleared up.

Describe highlights from today’s science and sailing watches:

Today we learned how to use and hoist the sails. We also did part of our experiment with catching plankton.

Do you have any questions, concerns, or expectations for tomorrow?

I hope that both watches will come onto shore after a day of sailing and we will play a group game like capture the flag or hide and go seek tag.
