Oops from WAY back when......
the Fleet was in that day
Coast Guard Station at Cape May
On a class trip there has to be some education.
We learned about the horsehoe crab.
Cape May Lighthouse
The red roofed building is a convent for retired nuns.
They threw a net in to see what we could catch and study.
They also threw in a plankton catcher.
Son is of course right up front into everything. He loves science.

In the net they caught some flounder and other fish.
They divided the stuff up for different areas of the boat.
The kids got to move around the boat to the different stations while we motored back to port.
I found a nice sunny seat and took pictures.
Checking out Plankton
We ended the day on the beach and in the water. HEAVEN!
