"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines.

Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." -Mark Twain

Caio Gloucester!

Dear Family and Friends,

It's time for us to leave Gloucester after four days in this beautiful and fascinating port. The people we have met here have been beyond memorable...
On Sunday we visited the Cape Ann Museum to see the work of Fitz Henry Lane. After being inspired by art work, we challenged ourselves to attempt to replicate his style in water color, included in our ongoing field journals.

The following day, we took a walk to Stage Fort Park, for a quick polar swim in the ocean (closest thing to a shower so far). The brave souls who took the plunge were Kelsey, Hazel, Liv, Olivia, Morgan, Kelsie, Bailey, Speight, Daniel, and David. 

 While at the Fisherman's Memorial, we came across a very nice man whose adorable puppy distracted us. His name was Nathaniel Mulcahy. After talking with him for a moment, we planned to meet him the next day at small piece of beach for him to teach us about sand dunes and barrier beaches. He was an extremely intelligent man, boasting six degrees, who gave an amazing insight to a small part of marine culture. We also invited him to breakfast on the Gamage this morning so he could see our artwork.

Hope everything is going well at home and at school, we're having a blast being off the grid for the term! 

    The "B" watch ladies: Kelsey, Liv, and Hazel. 

P.S. Don't worry parents, Lizzie is an amazing cook, we're not starving!
