Hi, It’s Katie! Yesterday was super fun and relaxing. We went to Accra Beach in the southern part of Barbados. Although it was slightly more of a tourist area, there was still a strong sense of Barbadian culture. There was a long boardwalk that went along the beach, which gave us a chance to see the entire area. While Merrill and I were walking together, we got to talk to a few of the locals. They are such friendly people and always make you feel welcome. Also, there were some cool facts about turtles posted along the boardwalk. According to the sign we read, Barbados is one of the most popular nesting grounds for the extremely rare hawksbill sea turtles. I thought it was awesome to see how much pride that Barbados takes in the preservation of their wildlife. After walking on the boardwalk we all ate a delicious lunch and tanned a little bit (Big mistake because I am currently red as a tomato). Overall, it was a fun and relaxing day and was the perfect day before our long week of teaching. Cannot wait to see what the rest of the week will bring, and I am so excited to see the kids grow and learn.
