Beach Cleanup

beach cleanupLast Sunday I had my monthly trip to Seabrook Beach with Beach Cleanup.  For two hours, we helped to clean up the beach and while walking along it, talked about life at the Academy.  Since it was low tide, it took longer than usual to clean up the beach but we found time afterward to buy some salted caramel hot chocolate from Dunkin’ Donuts.  When we were at the beach, we saw two souls brave the water.  The surfer was wearing a wetsuit and looked to be pretty warm.  The other swimmer was an older man in only swim trunks.  He must have been training for the polar bear club because we stuck our hands in the water and could only tolerate it for thirty seconds.

Happy Autumn!

About Paige

My name is Paige. I’m a Four-Year Senior at Exeter. I’m a boarder from the City of Champions, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I was born into a family that cherishes their ancestry and how it can continue to impact you and strange and unexpected ways. I developed an immense appreciation for the connections between culture, language, and religion. In the way children often do, I set a goal: to learn German. I stuck with it, not knowing how that would lead me to attend an amazing language immersion camp in middle school, a camp I am still involved with to this day. I decided after that first summer I was interested in a boarding school. Some family friends said I should look into Exeter, for both its student body diversity and in its academic diversity. I applied and love the diversity of both classes and people here. Although I finished my German studies last Spring, I have taken up Russian. This summer, I had the chance to travel to St. Petersburg, Russia through Exeter and hope to pursue Russian in Exeter.
