Today I went to Belle Isle Salt Marsh for aquarium class. First I went to an observation tower. I saw Tree Swallows and some Barn Swallows too. Then on the way to the mud I saw a Northern Mockingbird, he was imitating all kinds of sounds. When I got into the mud I realized that it was like quicksand because I sank very quickly. People’s shoes got stuck in the mud. One person found a horseshoe crab molt. Other people found hermit crabs deep in the mud. And other people found jellyfish and picked them up, because they couldn’t sting. The teachers also searched for snails. I got mud all over me! But some people were even muddier than I was. It was a fun trip.
