Our day began at the Marriott Long Wharf and we took a walk along the harbor while stopping to check things out. We observed all different types of things, both living and not, from plant life, sea life, sea birds to docks, ramps, rope, pillars and art.
Some of the things we observed were: sea weed; green, reddish-brown with a hing of purple, rock weed (sea weed that grows on rocks), a green crab, a seagull - who then found a crab for himself to eat, fish, shells (both clam and blue mussel), ducks, and bright green mossy stuff.
One our main observations were those we made while at the docks of The Barking Crab and also at one of the private docks in Boston harbor.
At the Boston harbor docks we found a decent amount of life, both plants, a strange rock, creatures and barnacles. We also got to see (well, I didn't, but I heard we did) some striper bass, crabs and starfish.
The fun came in when we arrived at the Barking Crab and got to lay on the docks while sticking our hands in, let's say, "stuff" and pulling it out from under the docks to see "what the hell is that!?", which, I feel, was the best part of the day by far.
My group consisted of Coulter Bailey and myself. We seemed to find some pretty cool and weird stuff under those docks. There was an abundance of blue mussels, orange stuff, leafy green (like lettuce) seaweed, mossy stuff in brown, green and a brownish-red, lots of slimy stuff with really cool flower looking things, almost like prints, on it and something else that kind of looked like a booger, among other things. The mussels we found had orange stuff, slimy booger stuff and even little tiny living creatures that to me, reminded me of sea monkeys!
