The Boat Tour

We got to sleep in a bit our third day here. And then we took a nice walk down the street to meet our tour guides and boats. We split up into the three boats and then headed into the man groves. The man groves while they seem plentiful are actually endangered and very valuable for the environment. Many animals rely on them for camouflage and for their homes. Sadly for us biology students we did not see any snakes or kamen; however we did see a lot of ibyss which is a lovely white bird with yellow feet. We also saw gackles which are black birds that look like crows. Some of the other students saw an iguana or two. I was really happy to get a glimpse of kingfisher, because those are one of my favorite birds.
