This is the second last report and it’ll be a brief one because it was a rest day. I’m right in thick of suburbia now and the river has well and truly turned into an estuary. Looking across the water from Taroona it’s kilometres to the far bank and ocean going ships steam up and down carrying goods to the port in Hobart. Kayakers and sailors zip about on their weekend pursuits and the silver gulls (normally just called seagulls here in Tasmania) bob lazily in the wind chop. The ocean swell rarely makes it this far up the estuary but tomorrow I’ll feel the Southern Ocean waves as they creep around Bruny Island. Many students have done lessons or had discussions on equipment that we’ve needed on this expedition so I thought I’d share some photos with you today. See how many bits of kit you can identify and name?
Cirque 2 Sea Day 27 : 27-08-2016
On The Edge
Tell us what you really think about the Cirque to Sea Expedition via our online surveys:
Cirque 2 Sea is a partnership project between the Bookend Trust, the Derwent Estuary Program and our supporters.
Let's make an expedition booklet!
Lots of students and classes have been doing some fantastic artwork, science investigations and research during the expedition and I think we need to gather some of it for a Cirque 2 Sea booklet. Get involved in two ways: As a class or as individuals (if you weren't doing this in your class)
1. Email your name (firstname surname) and/or class name/teacher (Year 3-4 Mr Hughes- Expedition Primary, Tasmania) and we'll publish you as expedition members in the back of the booklet.
2. Email me up to 5 photos of selected work (art/experiment/class activity) for possible publication in the booklet (please provide in JPEG form). We'll fit in as much as we can. We'll also put information about the River Derwent, weekly expedition reports and photos.
You can preorder copies for your school $5 each to cover the cost of design and printing.
Email: email@example.com by the end of Term 3
