Grenada: Lori and Kelly's Big Adventure

Captain’s Log: Day 9, Friday, August 20, 2010

Today started out at the pool. For the most part we were the only ones there. This is not tourist season so we were told that there were only 70 guests in the whole place. It was sooo nice, no lines, everyone was very friendly and eager to help. During the afternoon, another peace corps volunteer, Erin came over with a friend, Matt, visiting from the states.

We had fun and then noticed some coconuts needed picking, Matt used his best football throw to knock it down , so after much effort and guidance from one of the security guards one came down. He broke it open and we had the coconut water then the nice security guard came and scraped it out the fleshy part and it was yummy.

We played in the pool for a bit longer and then went back to the room. Later we sent Mackenzie to KFC for some americanized first white meat in over a week. While she was gone we went to the beach to watch our last day end and the most beautiful Grenadian sunset sadly waved goodbye as it sank in splendid display of colors into the Carribean sea.

Then we returned to our room for packing to get ready for our trip home.

This has been a experience making realize that truly,
Life Is Good
