We have finally left
Moving along... The San Blas are really nice, and I can’t believe how clear the water is compared to
I’m writing this paragraph a few days after I wrote the previous two, so I can cover more events with one update. Two days ago we spent a few hours creating a house/hut on a nearby island. The location we chose to make the hut was between of few palm trees and near the beach. We gathered old dry palm fronds to wedge between trees and weave between each other to make the walls, and pulled down low-lying branches then tied them together to make the ceiling. We pulled up old dry thick grass and placed it on the ground to make the floor. Even when we went to visit our hut after a storm our hut was dry and had little damage, so we must have built it fairly well. The only damage it suffered from the storms is that the palm fronds on the walls have sagged from the weight of the water, everything else is fine. The roof is made of living palm fronds so they won’t be blown off in the wind. We wanted to sleep there, but our parents wouldn’t let us stay the night, we only got to stay till 10
Yesterday we had a potluck and a fire where everyone in the anchorage comes. The potluck had lots of good food, and we got to roast marshmallows over the fire. Someone ate my marshmallows the day before, so I deserved them. My mom made brownies, and being the only dessert food there, they were eaten very fast.
Since then we have left the San Blas for the island of Providencia, traveled from Providencia to Guanaja, then Guanaja to where we are now, Roatan. Roatan has plenty of internet so I should of updated this sooner.
