Saturday afternoon we had some time so decided to drive around the island. We didn't get all the way around, so we'll save the other half for another day.
|Spectacular Ocean Views|
This photo does not do justice to the brilliant turquoise water. Today's drive was like driving though one picture postcard after another.
By far the majority of the population live near to the coasts. The interior of the island is made up of rain forest. We spent an hour driving through this very lush landscape, part of the time because we got lost.
|South Side of the Island|
It has rained everyday for the last few weeks on the south side of the island (we live on the north). As you can see things are pretty soggy. The missionaries living on this side are dealing with a lot of mud and muck.
