“Ocean of Activity” by Angela Bahna

Off the islands of Alaska’s Southeast
Lies an ocean, wide and released
Full of amazing activities
So many possibilities!

Go Kayaking through
Or go swimming too!
The ocean is meant for me and you

Take a boat out
Find whales and their spouts
Catch Coho and King
Think about the dinner it’ll bring!

As Sitkans of Alaska, we love our ocean
Many find it full of emotion
So now you can see
Stop dumping the debris
For Sitka’s ocean is meant for you and me.
