SEA’s Cape day one!!

July 20, 2022

Ella McCarthy- Belmont High School  &  Sophie Buckley- SSSAS


This morning we were awakened by our lovely RAs at 8:00 am. We then had breakfast and began our chores. Everyone is separated into four different watches and each watch is assigned a different task. These tasks include cleaning the common area, cleaning dishes, and cleaning the bathrooms(yum!). All jokes aside we all teamed up to get our chores done even though they may have not been the most fun. Next we had our first classes!

The first class that we had was Oceanography, taught by Karen Manning. Today we learned about Biological Oceanography. The second class that we had was Oceans & Society, taught by Ben Kochan. We learned about the Course and its overview. The third class that we had was taught by a guest nature illustrator, Tricia Cassady. She taught us the skills that we will use later when illustrating in the field. 

During our free time most of us chose to go to the beach. It was very hot today so the water felt very refreshing. The beach is only a 10 minute walk from campus! 

After a very tasty dinner of burritos we had an Exploratory period. Today we were led through an exercise that helped to strengthen our investigation, observation, and team building skills. We then had a study hall to finish any class work/ assignments we had.
