“The waves got bigger, and then we put extra lines on the tents but the rainbow with Seattle in the background was amazing!”
The experiences can’t ever be scripted when you are spending three days exploring the marine waters of Puget Sound in March.

S’mores over the fire last night made a blustery day on the water a proud memory of accomplishments. The students collected water samples which they examined under the microscopes and got plenty of time learning nautical skills.
