So if a rafting trip wasn’t enough, the next day we took a day trip to a botanical garden on the Sleeping Giant mountain and then head over to a popular mud bath. SV Me Too was getting splashed and the boys stayed at the boats to finish up some work but we were joined by SV All Day, Vlad and Nicole on this epic outing.
I rented a car for the day. It was the same price to take a cab but gave us a bit more freedom. Come to find out, the car rental place gave me an “illegal” car. You remember our trusty taxi guy Veer? Well he informed me that rental car companies have a special license plate to identify them as a rental car, so do taxis, they have a special license plate, yellow I believe…but our car license plate was white, which indicates it a personal car. He told us if I would of gotten into an accident, it would of been very bad for me…thank goodness that didn’t happen….but don’t think we were in the clear….but we’ll get to that later in the post!
The Gardens- Strolling among the beautiful foliage was relaxing.
So many orchids in so many colors…it was stimulus overload!
Mud Baths – I really didn’t have any expectations nor did I do any research beforehand about this place but it was so cool! it was just a few minutes away from the gardens.
Driving while Asian while on the way to Korean BBQ, how fitting! – So we are headed back to the marina after a wonderful and relaxing day….. then we saw this on the way home and had to stop to get a photo and video. This is a little train that carries the sugar cane all over the island…I had heard and seen it other times but never got a chance to get the camera out. Dad…I thought of you …wondering if you would tell me the history of this train (my dad loves trains)!
We picked up the Clay and Trevor back at the marina and headed out again to eat at a Korean BBQ place we saw while we had taken a trip to run errands. Except for Kimi was driving and hit a curb and blew out the side of a tire. The crazy thing was that I didn’t freak out, just pulled to the side of the road…the next crazy thing was that 3 vehicles stopped to help us all full of men ready to change to our spare tire. They called and talked to the rental car company as we couldn’t find the lug wrench to get the tire off….the men said they would go to the store and pick one up for us, OMG super nice of them…but we found it….in the bag with the jack (of course). That’s what I get when driving while asian…Clay drove us the rest of the way!
Finally dinner and REAL Korean food!
All in a day…this happened…it was fun, relaxing, stressful, and filling…wouldn’t change it for the world! Thanks to SV Me Too and their guest Kania and SV All Day for putting up with me!
Next up…technical boat work…ok not so technical : )
