Most all of us headed down to the Indian Bay. This beach was 5 minutes (walking) from our apartments and we frequented its waters during our entire trip. :) There are two islands in the near vicinity: one has a white cross on it which is the marker of a Vincentian grave; another is a rocky spit of land which is very hard to reach if wading.
We all desperately wanted to go to the rocky island and since our luggage was still in San Juan, we decided to roll-up our pants and wade across.
After a good deal of time on the beach, exploring and what-not, we all headed back to the apartments(aka home) and most of us took naps, read our Bibles, or played a game of Phase 10. Pastor Richards had told us that morning, that today was going to be our easiest day. :) Although none of us wanted to admit it, we were exhausted from travelling and the excitement of arriving at SVG, so it was wise to have a recharge right off.
For this night, we again loaded into the bus for dinner. At this time, our company added the "wise guys," as we eventually dubbed the other team from America, to our group.
Just a side note, our first bus-driver was Andrew, but then for a while Kevin covered for Andrew the first couple of days. :) Such cool guys. Their jobs are busing people around SVG. (Cool job, no?).
So, tonight I bumped into John Cambridge, (the guy from the first night who had talked with me about tropical fruit and such.
One thing which we had been warned of, and which we experienced as well, was "island time"! : ) Pastor Richards had told us that we would be able to have a tour of the island today and a taxi would pick us up at 2:15 p m but no taxi came and then at 6:15 we left for dinner a full 45mins later than they said. :) heh. well I guess we fast-paced Americans can learn something from the Vincentians' Island Time. :)
Well, good night for now. :)
