                  Afternoon Report From Carlyn to the Web

Please share some interesting stories about today…
We walked to Camp Four Winds from the other side of Orcas Island. After a few
rounds of Capture the Flag and writing data from our experiment down, we could get
down to the boat. But, we accidentally went the wrong way at first, so we had to go
back again.

Any favorite wildlife sightings, quotes, games to share?
There were a few seals swimming with heads sticking out of the water. We played a
lot of Big Booty, where you have to try not to mess up while saying people’s
numbers. We played it during every single chance we got. We also played capture the
flag, but it was a tie. We also saw a frog.

Describe the anchorage or moorage where Carlyn is right now:

On the side of the dock, there are sea stars and other plants and animals. Past the
dock there is a very rocky beach with lots of logs. There are a lot of trees and plants.

Today’s weather…
This morning, it was mostly sunny, but it got cloudier later in the day. There was a
little rain but it stopped quickly. Sometimes it got windy, but not so much most of
the day. It was very cold in the morning, but thankfully it got a lot warmer.

Describe highlights from today’s science and sailing watches:
We learned about knot tying in sailing. We also set up the main sail for the first time
this week. In science we used a colorimeter to test the surfactants. We looked at
plankton through the microscopes, and that was very interesting.

Any questions, concerns, or expectations for tomorrow?
We’re going to go to James tomorrow. We’re hoping for sun and for it to be warm, of
