Saint Lucia Wetland Drive
One the second day of our retreat, Friday November 7, 2014 we went on a Saint Lucia Wetland drive and got to go to the Indian Ocean. We road in a truck just like the ones we used for the game drive so we were able to see everything there was to see, which was a lot.
This was a fun day. There was a cloud cover again this day which kept the day a bit cool but it brought out the animals in full force. we saw animals almost continually as we drove around the wetlands. It was beautiful and a very interesting to see so many different animals and so much water. To an Arizona desert rat just to see so much water was a fascinating treat.
As part of the day we got to go to the the Indian Ocean. We were hoping to go snorkeling or at least Elder Edington was. I had decided to try but did not make any promises. Unfortunately by the time we got to the ocean, the tide was coming in and the wind was terrible which made the waves too dangerous to snorkel or even swim. Our guides said there were some really bad rip tides that would make snorkeling dangerous so we did not go. I was hoping to get to see some good tide pools but even that was not possible. It was fun to wonder up and down the beach. And most important, it gave us bragging right to say that we had been in the Indian Ocean. Wonderful day!
