Favorite Memories of Westminster Woods
There were lots of fun and exciting moments and experiences at Westminster Woods about two weeks ago. Some were fantastic and amazing. There are a few things I would like to share with you.
My favorite activity at the woods was going tide pooling. Oh, the creatures! Chitons, sea anemones, sea urchins, hermit crabs, sea sponges, tons of different kinds of sea stars, mussels and barnacles, a rare octopus, and lots more creatures! Some of them were quite abnormal!
My favorite trip was also going to the tide pools. I had to climb over tons of rocks. Most of them were seaweed or barnacle covered. It wasn’t very hard to maneuver around the big rocks near the cliff that lead to the tide pools. But the rocks near the tide pools were very slippery (I fell a lot) and hurt a bit. (barnacles aren’t dull and smooth!) But doing this was pretty darn fun!
My favorite information at the woods was about poison oak! I like the information about it because now I know how poison oak looks like. If I didn’t learn about that at Westminster Woods, I might have been really itchy a week ago or in the future. “Leaves of three, let them be.”
My favorite memory that I’ll remember forever at Westminster Woods was once again, the tide pools. I’ll remember climbing through sandstone cliffs, and looking at fantastic new creatures.
The cabin I slept in was pretty cool. We went to sleep around 9:30 which was awesome. But sleep was terrible, at least for me. It was seeping hot in there, so it was hard to sleep. Oh well, the rest of camp was spectacular.
Oh, and just saying, tide pools to me were better than the hikes.
Though Westminster Woods was a week long, it felt very short. Almost everything at Westminster Woods was marvelous! I want to go there again with the rest of the class!
