Since the men spent a day and night on a camping trip the ladies decided to take a day trip as well. With Pastor John as the chauffeur we took a tour around the island. It didn't quite work for everyone to join us.

The bus was too heavy so we had to unload and walk up the hill!
Our first stop was Spice Isle Petting Zoo
although I've been there before it was nice to be there and not have little kids to keep an eye on the whole time. These guinea pigs brought back childhood memories!
Iguanas-if a Grenadian would "hold" (catch) one of these it would be cooked in no time!
Ginger the baby monkey
Manicou as we call it in Grenada...stateside possum! They are very good to eat!
We also toured the Chinese gardens. They grow the plants and farmers around the island come and take them from there.

Luke-the Chinese man- has lived in Grenada for three years. He said he never heard the name Jesus until some time ago someone gave him a Bible. Pray for him if you think about it!
Lokalohm housing development that was built by the Venezuelans for low income families.

Morgan was the only child that got to come along. She was a good little trooper!
We ended the day by eating supper at a little restaurant in Grand Anse. It was a lovely day.
This past weekend was a busy one as well but I believe I will leave it for another blog since this one is full of pictures already.
