Adventures in Barbuda 9/26/09
Such a nice day exploring Barbuda .Ist the Beach and caves. Saw Indian Marks on the wall inside. Had to crawl some. Shouldn't have worn a skirt but at least I had my Keen hiking shoes on ! You can really see how folks could have lived in caves. They are right on the ocean and whole hill was made of coral! Don't ask me how that happens ??? Anyways saw many hermit crabs of all sizes and made sure not to step on any. Then off to To Trash Bay which I names recycle bay.(the side of island that trash /fish nests etc land on coral rocks on shore ). Found cool driftwood boards,dried crab shells,fishnet, shells,corral etc which I later made into cool name plaques when glued all together. Fun gifts to bring home. Then climbed hill to ruins of THE Big house from the 1700 .( Owner of the slaves that lived here.) Like others in the past... found pottery/glass pieces. Someone here had previous pieces carbon dated and sure enough they are from early 1700 ! Glued some on plaques I made. Will teach the recycle crafts project to ladies in village next week.
