1: Cape Cod Memories Laneasha Sargeant- Warren
2: It turns out that the trip was awesome!! I loved every minute of it! It was the best experience ever. | When I first heard about the Cape Cod trip, I could admit i was a bit worried. Hearing the opinion of the 8th graders made it a lot harder for me to accept. But I decided that if I had a positive attitude, I will have a better time.
3: My Super Schedule!
4: Button Bush Trail! | I am following the trail for the blind. | The entrance of Buttonbush trail
5: Button Bush trail is one of the only trails in the world for the blind. I thought it was an interesting trail because you had to close your eyes for the entire hike. Ms. Dirmeikis promised if we all do the trail honestly then we'll stop at Ben and Jerry's for ice cream. Although I do admit i opened my eyes a few times. I remember almost tripping cause i missed the bumps in the rope. The bumps in the rope meant that there is going to be a step ahead. Further up past the begging of the trail there was a bridge we all had to open our eyes at. The rain storm flooded the bridge, We all grabbed on to the railings of the bridge and stepped on the edges and climbed across. When I finally finished the trail my hands were stinging a bit because of rope burn. It was a great trail.
6: Doane's Rock | Lunch at Doanes rock was different for Latoya and I.
7: The whole starfish group smiling for the cam, at Doane's Rock
8: Cedar Swamp! | Lucas, Gabby and I, singing our Cedar Swap song | Me reading facts about Cedar Swamp
9: I got up, stretched and did an exhausting breath. Lucas, Gabby, and I had to do our presentation. Our presentation was on Cedar Swamp Trail. We read our information and sung our tune. Now I was ready to see or words in action! I shield my eyes as i walk off the shady, cool bus and into the bright, hot sunny day. We all gathered around, and bathed in bugs pray. It was time to walk the trail. | The beggining of the White Cedar Swamp Trail.
10: Cedar Swamp! | The beautiful view of the board walk and it surroundings.
11: Cedar Swamp trail had to be one of the most amazing trails I've ever been on. It was beautiful. Ms. Monihan let us in one by one so we can each enjoy the trail alone and experience it the way we want. Although we were supposed to go alone, Latoya and I met up on the board walk. The water was still, quiet, looked red, it was a great view. I didn't see any life anywhere, but I am 100% sure there was life in the water. The sweet smell of the trees glided in and out of my nose. I did find my self walking into webs, but i didn't let it bother me, I was enjoying my self. I bathed in bug spray, but for some reason i felt as if i were in bug island. Most of the things I read on the bus were right before my eyes. If i had an opportunity to walk Cedar Swamp Trail again, No doubt, I'll take the opportunity. | Oh, the Places You'll Go! -Dr.Seuss | One touch of nature makes the whole world kin. -William Shakespeare | To me a lush carpet of pine needles or spongy grass is more welcome than the most luxurious Persian rug. -Helen Keller

16: Teacher's Trick! Wednesday May 19th TAG “On the second night we see a movie!” I remember Ms. Dirmiekis saying. I got all excited, clench my fists, and smile unevenly. “Were going to see The Sands Of Time.” Uhhhhhhhhhhhh I'm trying to hold my disapointment in. “Are you kidding me?” But then. BOOM It hit me. I remember my sister telling me about how the teachers tricked them. So I sit there. Smirking at everyone else's reaction to the movie. But as I smirk, | a confused feeling flows through me. So I sit there. Smirking at everyone else's reaction to the movie. But as I smirk, a confused feeling floats through me. What if she really means it? Thursday May 27th On the bus “Can we just get off already?” I moan to my self. Ms. Dirmeikis grabs the mic “Are you guys ready to see The Sands Of Time?” I couldn't help but think. One hour and twenty eight minutes of sleep for me Yup I say, loud enugh for the seats in front of me to hear. Yeah Sure..
17: Finally! We all stand up and shove out of our seats. I leave back all my belongings and shove inbetween two anxious people. Looking at the theater makes me have second thoughts about my doubt. HuuuuuuuuHHH I breath in Then out I grab the handle of the door And fling it open. The buttery smell of popcorn flew through my nostrils. I see a table nearby set up with popcorn and soda I grab a sprite and a pale of pop corn. | I walk into the darkness of theater Mr. Dixson was wind-milling his arm towards. Uh oh I guess we really are seeing The Sands Of Time I walk past him To the theater. Wait a minute I walk backwards out of the darkness Crane my neck up and see something That puts a kool-aid smile on my face I knew it! We weren't watching The Sands Of Time But instead we watched Shrek 4 Ever After It's not like I had 2nd thoughts anyway!
18: 2nd Day! | Sand Dunes! | Latoya and I burried Melanie in the sand. | Me trying to stop my fall!
19: The sand dunes were so much fun! I was afraid to jump at first but then i decided to get over my fears and try something new, it worked out pretty well | If i hadn't tried it, I knew i would regret it. I never would of thought that jumping, sliding, and diving in sand can be awesome.
20: Sailing on the Naviator! | Me holding a hermit crab | A much bigger hermit crab | Out of all our activities, this was the one i was the most concerned about. Touching all he sea critters
21: Tidal Flats Activity! | Well since i exper | We found a sea worm! | Hermits all over in my Zip Loc
22: Last Day=( | Osprey and Biking. | We saw Osprey feeding their babies | Biking behind Latoya.
23: Lunch at Local Flavor. | Melanie and I cheesing!
24: Final Thoughts | Overall the trip has been pretty good. No i didn't get to go to the light house, but yeah I got over my fears. Next year I would change a few things but other than those things the trip was successful. Going home wasn't great but I did kind of miss my family. The next year students are going to have a blast!
