Today we woke up to a delicious breakfast of oatmeal. After breakfast we heading to Nevis and Barry, our faithful taxi driver, drove us to the Golden Rock Hotel where we would start our 2 mile hike up Mt. Nevis that takes you to the source of the islands water. The hike took about an hour and a half. We saw monkeys in the trees and baby pigs. The hike was beautiful and in a rainforest. It was pretty slippery in some places but not bad at all. The top of the hike ends at the waterfall. To get to the waterfall you have to climb a scary looking ladder. The way back down, another 2 miles, was not as strenuous but the trail and scenery were just as pretty. After the hike we ended back up at the Golden Rock and ate a delicious lunch of various sandwiches and soups. The Golden Rock has one of the oldest cannons in the Caribbean. The view from there was amazing. After lunch we had a few hours of shore time and then return to Ocean Star. Tonight we are having student leadership class with Kevin. Today was hard but rewarding and breathtaking.
