Today, I went to Fort Ross. I got straight down to work. I carried the poke poles all the way there. We had to go down a pretty steep cliff. We looked in vain for a place to fish. I was the first one to see the harbor seals. When we finally found a spot, we baited our hooks with squid and anchovies. We fished and fished but we caught nothing. We stopped fishing for a while and caught 4 crabs. When Mr. Kornfein came, he gave us a clue on where to fish. But still we caught nothing. We were all happy and a bit sad.
11/20/98 12 a.m. - 2 a.m.
When we had nightwatch it was hard for me to get there because I was so sleepy! I even fell asleep on the bench! I ate only one teacake.It was freezing while we were out there. The fire was very, very, very warm. I could hardly get to my sleeping bag.
We went to the beach to day. We went there at about 11:00. I got soaked up to my knees. Salt water got into my boots. It was fun but very wet. We went to the museum after changing shoes.
What I Will Remember
There are many great things that I will remember from. Fort Ross. The three memories that I will remember the longest are seeing Fort Ross cove, trying the dip, and fishing.
I will remember when I saw Fort Ross cove. I first saw it when we went over the ridge. It was big and rocky. I was surprised when I saw it because I thought it would be bigger. I had seen pictures in books and it looked bigger in the pictures.
I will remember tasting the dip because it tasted so good. I tasted it when I finshed hunting. I was very hungry after hunting. It was surprised that they had a snack. Everyone was having the dip!
I will remember fishing because we had lots of fun. I carried the poles to the beach and I was the first to spot a seal. We used squids. We also used anchovies. We didn't catch anything.
