Today we took off from Montreal and landed in Antigua. When we got here we got our swim suits on and went to the beach. I had a virgin strawberry daiquiri , it was yummy. For dinner we went to the docksider buffet, I ate chicken with potatoes and veggies. It was a good day.
Today we had another beach day. We built a fort out of palm leaves, coconuts, coral , rocks, leaves and vines, and sand. It was awesome. We played in our fort a lot. That night we had dinner at rainbow gardens and lunch was at coco's.
we went paddle boarding around the bay, it was great. Another fun day. I will tell you more tomorrow.
Today we went on a catamaran tour. The boat went down the coast of Antigua on the Caribbean side of the island. I got to drive the boat , it was fun. One of the crew members named Solomon showed me 2knots. The names of those knots were bow line and half hitch. After an hour we went snorkelling , we saw lots of fish on the coral reef. When we were done snorkelling I went for a zodiac ride to pick up a snorkeler. For lunch we had a beach BBQ and steel drum band was playing music. A fun day!!
Today I took a windsurfing lesson. I learned how to do the basic windsurfing steps. The steps were first pull up the sail grab with your front hand first then your back hand. And to add gas pull your back hand in. To turn tilt the mast backwards or forewords. Those are the basic windsurfing steps. After that I went for a beach BBQ. In the afternoon we went to the other beach and went to coco's pool to go swimming. Then the day was done so we got ready for dinner at the piccolo, it was an Italian restaurant. After dinner we went down to the dock to see a gigantic luxury yacht. I think it was bigger than my house.
Today we went on a jeep tour. First we went to a zip line place. There was one that they bounced you on, it was great. There was another one that was 334 feet and it was called the screamer. After zip lining we took a stop at a fruit stand to get some Antiguan fruit. After that we went to a mangrove estuary, we saw mangrove crabs, we saw fish, and a blue crab. My mom and dad went snorkelling on caves reef. And before we did all that we went to a top of a mountain to write on aloe plants. On that mountain we saw another island with an active volcanoe on it. It was another sweet day.
Today I got a few more braids in my hair. After the person was done braiding I went in a hobie cat with my dad and rob. We saw a green back turtle, it was big and we were 10 feet away from it!! He was near a coral reef we saw. After that we went for lunch. After lunch we went to kids club and made tie dye bandanas. Another great day. Tomorrow we are going to stingray bay. I'll tell you more about it later.
Today we went swimming with stingrays, it was my favorite part of the trip. I fed the stingrays dead squid. The stingrays were soft and slimy and I got to hold them. See you when I get home
