We finally got to see the beach today! We left the house at 8:30 this morning to head to Las Cuevas, a beach on the north coast. There, we observed plants, animals, wave frequencies, and fishing. I had a lot of fun exploring the beach and taking photos of the area. One of the best parts about this beach was the dogs we saw running around. They were both puppies and so happy to run and play with us (we all wanted to keep them). The water was so clear (and they said this was their murky water). Another thing I loved about this beach trip was meeting a man named Peter. I missed the first part of the discussion, but he ended up climbing up a tree and cutting fresh coconut for us. It was just a cool thing to see. And it tasted amazing.
I was so glad to have to chance to experience the ocean. It was the first time I saw the beach on this trip. Since Trinidad is very Americanized, it helped make it feel like we were abroad. I had a great day getting to know the other students better and learning more about Trinidad.
