Day 9- Anegada Rock Iguanas!
Posted: Wed, Jul 17, 2013
Day two in Anegada. We started with Torin playing the role of cab driver again for us, taking us to the Old Anegada Yacht Anchorage. From there some of us went to tag turtles and the rest of us went to the Anegada Rock Iguana Rehabilitation Centre. There was nobody working there that day so we pretty much had to hop the fence to get into the iguana sanctuary. There were tons of beautiful young iguanas. I had never seen any before so it was very interesting to see them. I hope we get the chance to go back and see them again. After seeing the Iguanas I got a chance to go turtle tagging. Unfortunately my specific boat didn’t catch any but when we got back I was able to record data for a different turtle that we caught. We ended up catching only two turtles but I believe we will have the opportunity to go back and try again tomorrow. The turtles were amazing. We then got shore time for about an hour to explore the shops in town and reconnect with home. It was nice to get in touch with everyone back at home and let everyone know how we’re doing. We then went back to the boat and hung out for the rest of the night. For dinner we had risotto and salad with cookies for desert. My squeeze question tonight was “what is one thing that has gotten you through everything in your life?” most peoples responses were parental related. All in all today has been a really good day. We’re all really enjoying the trip and the days continue to get better as it goes along.
