|One of the many views from the boat|
Today has been my favorite day so far. Today we went kayaking/canoeing. It wasn't really a kayak and it wasn't really a canoe, it was hybrid of the two. But the same concept of both. We maneuvered through a mangrove forrest into a small and peaceful lagoon. We saw small caves and beautiful greenery. I was attacked by a monkey. I'm 0 for 2 with the animal life in this country. People have been feeding these monkeys for years and now they expect it and just come and take things. We had a plastic bag with out water in it, which just happened to be in between my feet in the boat. One of the monkeys scrambled down and tree, jumped in, tossed aside Jordan's snorkeling gear and took it. I may have had screamed a bit, okay a lot.... We're both lucky I didn't flip our little boat! The whole journey took about 2 1/2 hours. It was beautiful. I'd do it all over again in a heartbeat. The views and the peacefulness was simply breathtaking. I wanted to just stay and float for hours. Soaking up the sun. Listening to the water ripple and the wind rustle the trees.
