Location: Grenada

Today was our last day in Grenada. We have all come to love this island, from its volcanic mountains and lakes to the sandy, fronted fishing villages. We could easily spend more time here. We visited a school in a small town called Grand Roy, a 30-minute drive north along the green coast. There we talked with the 5th and 6th-grade classes about our life onboard Ocean Star and compared it with theirs here in Grenada. The children were so enthusiastic, full of energy, and willing to learn. We broke into the two smaller classes and taught them how to tie knots and helped them to identify and draw fish. Throughout the experience, we were all inspired by how quickly they picked things up and how much fun they made it. This was the first time that Ocean Star had visited the Grand Roy Government Primary School, but we will definitely be back! After a morning at the school, we traveled a bit further to the small fishing village of Gouyave, where we had a delicious lunch and enjoyed walking along the beach, cooling our feet in the water, and taking in the beautiful scenery. Back onboard Ocean Star, we are now about to go over our first Advanced Diver knowledge review, as tomorrow we will be getting back in the water to dive and begin our next level of certification.
