Lagoon report for Wed June 24th

Greetings to everyone who's reading this!

I realize it has been several weeks since I have posted on the site and I feel bad about it. Life and work have caught up with me in very busy way. I am going to do my best to post once a week. Try and give more of an overview of whats going on at the Lagoon instead of a Day to day. Work has got my schedule as such that it doesn't allow me the time that it used to. So bare with me, Thank you!These are all random shots from around the Lagoon area. With June Gloom in full effect it doesn't do much for the lighting when photographing. But I've caught a few mornings of sunshine here and there. Thankfully the afternoons have been Perfect weather, I'm sure you've all enjoyed the evenings.

So my buddy Geoff and I stopped by the Lagoon to play some frisbee and low and behold, Taylor was there. So we're tossing the frisbee around and of course, without fail it goes into the Lagoon. Since Taylor was the one who threw it into the Lagoon, he had to go after it. So check out the pictures below and see how the story unfolded...
Out comes the Frog suit....

And a long pole with a net on the end

Marching off into battle

The march continues....

The realization that this is going to take more than a frog suit to get the frisbee out from the middle of the Lagoon

What can we say, he tried.

We had to get the Canoe out and paddle against strong winds to reach our frisbee but eventually we saved it!! Phew, it was a close call.

Anyway, there are a lot of things happening at the Lagoon these days.

First off- the WAMSEC or Wetland and Marine Science Education Center is open for Fun! The hours are Thurs-Sunday 230-7pm. Come down, learn fun stuff about the Lagoon or try your best to beat Taylor at a game of Ladder Ball. We also have two new Innovators working down there as well. Eric and Shannon will be down there as well at various times to help out and have some fun!

Secondly- We are in the midst of planning our big summer event, Acoustic Tidal Artwalk on July 18th. Its a night of music and Art in the sand. There will be live music, live art, Activities for the kids, food vendors and much more. It starts at 5pm and goes til 10pm.

Well there is a quick update on whats happening at the Lagoon. I'll do my best to check back in early next week!

Take care of each other
