BC: The Cape Cod trip was fun and educational. The bus ride back to Wayland Middle School was long but quiet and relaxing. Returning home to celebrate a long Memorial day weekend is cool!

12: The Sand Dunes My second day at CapeCod, the first activity was the sand dunes. After getting off the buses and walking up a steep hill we came to a long valley of sand which was very bumpy and lots of fun to jump off from. We spent a great deal of time there. We made goofy pictures and silly sculptures but failed because the sand wouldn't stay together. We wrote our name in sand and buried people. When it was time to leave some of us had a hard time climbing back up the hill and needed help.
13: The Navigator After our trip to the Sand dunes, we drove to Wellfleet Harbor and boarded "The Navigator" to go study marine animals. While on the boat we threw nets into the water and then pulled the nets in to view the marine life. We caught Spider crabs, Rock crabs, Hermit crabs, Clams and a few other animals. After studying the animals we gently and safely returned them to the ocean.
14: Tidal Flats The Tidal Flats activity is when there is low tide, you explore for marine life, examine them and then return them to the sea. We also looked at different sea plants and bigger animals like horseshoe crabs, a flounder, sand shrimp and eels which are usually found in the soft sand. it was a challenge finding most of the animals because they would hide beneath the sand, sea plants and abandoned clam shells.
15: My Thoughts About The Cape Cod Trip... At first I thought the Cape Cod trip was not going to be fun but it turned out to be very exciting, interesting and fun. The activities were very enjoyable and not boring.
