The first day in the field was very exciting and surprising for someone who thinks he knows everything. The power of a map - I have lived in the Boston area my whole life and never knew you could get to Hull in 20 minutes from Boston!
I saw no fish but a few ducks swimming in the water that had debris floating on top, some trash and some weeds, etc. There were no foul smells, just the smell of the ocean and clean, fresh air!
With a startling horn from the ferry we were off to see the harbor. The water was surprisingly clean looking – a bluish green.
- How the biodiversity in the harbor acted as a food web
- How the formation of the harbor was created by glaciers
- The convenience and protection the harbor provided was key to the development and success of the Boston area as it was developed.
We spotted many of the islands and harbors we has looked at on our maps as we were researching.
Here are a few of the locations I photographed:

It was a great day – can’t wait to get wet tomorrow!
