Today, Orion and I went on a walk around the property. As we were walking, he told me some stories about what happened here. Here they are:
First, Orion told me when he and his friends tried to make candle wax with Bayberries. You can convert 5 lbs of Bayberries into 1 lb of wax, but that takes a loooooooooooong time, so they gave up. So, mission failure for them.
The next story was about when Orion and some others went to a board next to a stream here and saw a Northern Water snake, a snake that can bite, but it isn’t poisonous. It can grow to be 2 feet long, it’s red and yellow, and it’s also shiny. Then, they put it in the road and it slithered away.
The last story was about when Orion and his friends were on the beach and they found a Bluefish. They took it onto the beach and tried to put in a bucket, but it was too big. Lenny asked if they wanted to keep it or let it go, and they chose to let it go.
So, this is some of the stuff that has happened at the Field Station.
