Out and About: Goat Island

Today I went on a school trip to a beach two hours from Auckland for biology. It was the kind of day I love, grey and stormy [no rain though!] and we headed down to the sand and sea to get to work recording data. I took some photos because who wants to work?

The grass was just the most gorgeous shade of green and this photo does no justice.

People from my school gathered on the beach.
Out on the rocks.
The waves were crashing so loudly and I loved it.
Annoying ducks and seagulls that decided to bother us whilst we were eating lunch.
What I was looking at whilst eating lunch.
 And that was my day. It was pretty good for a school day with some interesting moments such as my friend slicing her foot open on a barnacle and bleeding everywhere and nearly falling over as we clambered on the rocks. It was pretty exhausting not to mention the fact I also spent 4 hours on the road getting to and from there. I saw some pretty hilarious and disgusting things at the marine biology centre there; holding a starfish that squirmed around, squirting a sea squirt and watching a clam attack. 
All in all, quite the adventure.
