Ocean Classroom 2019: Day Twenty Five

St. Michael’s

Ryan K.

The usual 07:00 wake up rolling out of bed was difficult even though the crew members woke us up with a beautifully sung Christmas song, “All I want for Christmas is You.” Then came a delicious breakfast of ham, egg and cheese. For our afternoon activity we went to the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum. Our boat ride from Roseway to the dock was on this really cool old fashioned style boat. Once on the dock we proceeded into the welcome center. The welcome center had a replica or look alike ship that fishermen used for finding mussels. I followed students into a building, where there was a boat in the process of being built. After some walking around in the building I found a build your own boat game. I tried it and within 50 yards it capsized and I lost thousands of mussels. Outside the building there was a man carving away at a piece of wood for the keel of the ship being built inside. Next Ian and I went up some stairs into a lighthouse where there were historical artifacts and old black and white photos of the lighthouse. After a couple of hours at the museum we got a boat ride back to Roseway and Emily got to drive the boat back. Once on Roseway the students played games as an evening activity.
