I'm beginning to get the hang of our routine here on this island. Unexpected visitors of the critter kind are a daily reminder that yes, we ARE in the wild. Two adorable geckos have made an appearance in our cabin and blue crabs dance sideways over the bed of dry leaves outside our front stoop, eying me suspiciously as I walk by. I seem to startle the deer that run through the brush here every time I step outside the cabin doors, but the donkeys don't seem to be phased by much of anything.
The girls seem to be getting more comfortable with each lesson they teach. The kids at the school absolutely love our girls. They call them by name as we walk by in the hallways, and hugs are a mandatory greeting partner. It's especially fun to see them as we head back to our cars after a day of teaching- they call out from the backseats of their parents cars, yelling the girls' names as paparazzi would to a celebrity.
Today was a bit hotter and muggier than we've experienced thus far. Once school was out, the girls requested a venture to a new beach just down the road at Hawk's Nest. What a great idea it turned out to be!! More wildlife to be had! As the girls were in the water, a ray, school of tiny fish, and some larger fish swam around their legs. There was even a small octopus sighting!
Just another day in paradise...
