A special meeting of our Road Scholar group will outline the highlights of our options for the week, including lectures, workshops, entertainment and resources. Our options for this morning include taking a bird walk with our Island Naturalist, to catch sights of many species of birds, whose time of peak activity is early morning. The swimmers among us may want to join the Polar Bear Group for a morning dip in the ocean.
In the hotel dining room, we will have a family-style meal with different daily offerings ranging from soup and sandwiches to Mac-and-Cheese, along with water, tea, coffee and milk.
We have the option to learn about tidal processes, explore intertidal zones, and observe the marine organisms found along the shore with a local expert. We also have the opportunity to attend one of the workshops offered on Star Island, with past ones ranging from hand-tinting photographs to creating outdoor sun prints. This year will offer a completely new set of workshops. Afterwards, we can enjoy the daily Star Island social hour.
