Afternoon Report From Carlyn to the Web
Please share some interesting stories about today…
Any favorite wildlife sightings, quotes, games to share?

Describe the anchorage or moorage where Carlyn is right now:
The Carlyn is currently moored to a mooring line in Echo bay. The purpose of the mooring line is so people don’t have to use anchors to moor. It is right off the shore.
It was sunny with about a minute of hail, but also mostly cloudy. Some of the crew also received sunburns. The day ended with a stunning sunset.
Describe highlights from today’s science and sailing watches:
All kids participated in practicing hoisting and stowing the sails while using proper language. Science teams learned how to deploy their equipment properly and record their data efficiently. Everyone was able to effectively complete their jobs.
Any questions, concerns, or expectations for tomorrow?
Where is water watch going to go camping tomorrow? How will we get to said location? What will the weather be like? Will we discover more about our question about silica?
