First matter of business: tour the SEA ship, the Corwith Cramer. There was so much to look at. The laboratory (where students and crew studied microscopic plankton and water chemistry), the focs’l (the front of the ship), the main salon (eating, studying, and sleeping room), the galley (kitchen), the aft cabin (the captain’s quarters,) and the quarter deck (helm). We ran into multiple crew members who greeted us and taught us a bit about the ship, such as learning about the navigation technology and traditional charts which are still used today. It was extremely interesting, and took up a good two hours of the town visit.

Happy Birthday Jess!
Today was Jess’ birthday: Happy Birthday Jess!
After yesterday’s humidity breaking rain, we all woke up to our first chilly morning. Convinced that being awake wasn’t actually so bad by a warm breakfast of egg and sausage breakfast sandwich, we completed our daily chores and attended our watch meetings, where we learned reef knots and bowlines, before heading to class.

A day in Woods Hole
Today was our first trip to Woods Hole, we started the day with a early wake up call of 7:00 AM. Sluggishly got out of bed and ate a breakfast of cereal, then finished chores and prepared for the trip ahead.

Lighthouse Lenses and Natural History Sketching
Today, we woke up at 7:30, as usual, and headed to the commons for pancakes and bacon. It was really foggy outside, unlike the past days. No one seems to enjoy this weather. After breakfast, we played Wa (a fun, silly camp game) on the field then headed to a lighthouse about five minutes away.

Second Full Day of SEAScape
Hi, we’re Alanna and Becca and today was the second full day of SEASCape.
We woke up at 7:30 as usual, and ate breakfast in our cabins. The humidity seemed to have built up over the night, so everything seemed just a little sticky.

Sure was a Great First Day for SEASCape Session 1!
Today was our first full day at SEASCape! We all woke up at 7:30 to get dressed and ready for breakfast at 8:00. After our bowls of cereal and bushels of grapes, we learned about the chore rotations and watch groups. We were then able to meet with our watch groups to begin learning how to tie basic knots.

The Wind Blows for SEASCape Session 1!

It’s hard to believe another SEASCape class has already come and gone from the SEA campus. Just three short weeks ago, the RAs and I welcomed 28 high school students from across the country and around the world to our little home here on Cape Cod. Little did they know what this program had in store for them! The amount of personal growth that occurred these past 21 days is astonishing – many of these students went from timid and unsure of being away from home to independent, strong leaders in their community here.

A Day of LASTS
We started out with our cereal breakfast and got ready (emotionally and physically) for our LAST academic day.
We learned in the morning about deep sea animals and underwater vents all over the world. For oceans and societies and reviewed all we had learned and shared the narratives we had been writing about our place in the ocean history.
