Limpets in New Hampshire

Join Aquarium Teen Program Coordinator Liz Whitlinger and campers with the Harbor Discoveries Schooner Adventure Camp as they blog from the high seas. After a week of preparation, our crew of young explorers board a Grand Banks schooner and set sail for a five-day, four-night excursion exploring Massachusetts Bay.

The drive on Wednesday to the Seacoast Science Center was SO long. Too long. Most of us fell asleep in the van. Once we arrived we were told we had 30 minutes to check things out. Makayla and I went straight to the touch tank. In the tour we saw pregnant sea horses, deep water fish and HUGE lobsters that were eating. 

After the tour we went tide pooling which was wicked fun.  We found green crabs and Asian shore crabs.  We also found a limpet. They are related to snails but look kind of like a barnacle. The best part was enjoying the cold water.
