Mark talking to Summer Dreamers at U-Prep before heading to the swim pool

Addressing summer school students at PPS U-Prep, before going to the pool, in a by-gone summer. Things are different in 2020 and 2021. You get to join and speak to our kids in a recorded story.

Help with Story Time at our Cyber Swim Camp

Due to the global pandemic, meeting in person and going swimming at our summer camp with Pittsburgh Public School didn't happen. Help came from many sources so as to provide our city kids, grades 4 and 5, a quality experience with water via computer screens.


In the summer of 2020, more than thirty stories of water were collected.

Camp happened for for 1-hour a day for 27 days, June to August, 2020.


Since camp ended, up-beat, enlightening, straight-forward stories with a water component has continued.

If you have a story to share, we'd love to include it in this collection.

News of Water:

Alaska’s snow crab season is canceled.

For the first time ever, the state’s Department of Fish and Game canceled the winter snow crab season due to a dramatic (and perplexing) plunge in the snow crab population. An estimated 1 billion of the crustaceans have vanished in the past two years, amounting to a 90% drop in their numbers. The cancellation of crab season will hit the US seafood industry hard, particularly in the local communities in Alaska that depend on the harvest.
