A Relaxing Day Off

Zachary Stayn & Rose von Eckartsberg, Milton Academy & Yorktown High School

SEA Semester

Today was Sunday! We had no classes and fun activities. After sleeping in, the sweet smell of french toast and bacon woke us up. After a leisurely brunch, we created tye-dye shirts. Though we were firmly told to use only three colors on our shirt, almost everyone went crazy with the paint.

Full day of fun

After a few days of all-day field trips, we went back to our normal schedule of two classes, each an hour and a half in the morning.

New Bedford

Today we travelled off the Cape to the port town of New Bedford, Massachusetts. Upon our arrival in New Bedford, we visited the New Bedford Fishing Heritage Center, where we examined commercial fisheries through the perspective of local fishermen. We discussed the growth of fishing in New Bedford, beginning with subsistence fishing, and the subsequent rise of commercial fishing.

Huge Field Trip Day

Lana Lines & Jack Ryan, Brookline High School & Minuteman High School

SEA Semester

Our day began with cheesy beany breakfast courtesy of Jasper. We packed our lunches and hit the road. Our first stop was the Mashpee Wampanoag Museum, which took one hour to reach by bus, and had a good parking lot for playing games while we waited to go in.

First Free Day!

Emerson Jenen & Sydne Twarosch, Bronx High School of Science & Pioneer Valley Performing Arts School

SEA Semester

Today was Sunday! That meant that we had no classes and could sleep in. Now we did what any sensible person would do. Many of the attendees of SEASCAPE got our nails painted by each other. The colors that we painted nails with were blue, green, white, sparkly pink, and a light pink. Later, many of us wanted to see a new movie called Spiderman: Far From Home.
