Anegada Field Trip

Our overnight trip to Anegada was exceptional. We had such a great time exploring the island’s history and culture. We went on an island tour where we got to see the flamingos from a lookout. We also saw the Iguana facility which takes care of juvenile iguanas until they are released. The Fisherman’s Wharf was a favorite. We got to chat with local fishermen and see the conch shell mounds in the distance. After touring, we enjoyed a delicious meal and some swimming at Anegada Beach Club. We were fortunate to have Mr. Randel Smith, who had been working at the National Parks trust for almost 30 years, come and sit with us before dinner for a very informative and interesting discussion about Anegada, especially the flamingos and iguanas. After dinner we enjoyed a movie night before heading to bed. The children were early risers on Friday morning. They made pancakes and scrambled eggs for breakfast then transitioned to morning meditation and a long walk on the beach. After lunch we enjoyed a scavenger hunt and more swimming before heading back to Tortola. I was so very proud of the children’s eagerness to learn as well as their grace and courtesy. Many shared how impressed they were by their interactions with the children. Thank you parents for helping to make this trip such a huge success!
