TRACK AND TRAIL DAY 1!! DON’T CHICKEN OUT!

And then there were four! The ones left behind you could say, but we’re in for such a treat this week!!! Track and trail is such an incredible experience, and we can’t wait for it to start!!! We had today off pretty much, and unfortunately the weather didn’t want to cooperate with us. We had to be creative in our activities, but it was certainly a success! We got a bit of a sleep in and then had a catered breakfast brought to us in our room. We felt like it was the VIP special treatment or something. We then walked around town and explored the shops. We all wanted to look some more and get gifts for family or ourselves, so that was a perfect time to do it.

We had some triangle sandwiches again for lunch, which Shawn was extremely excited about… :/ But enjoyed it nonetheless. After that, we went to the local crocodile center. We were expecting just a small museum of exhibits, but what we got instead blew our socks off!!DSCN0042

We got a tour of the entire center of live variations of crocodiles! It was also feeding time when we went, so we got to see them feed the crocs dead chickens. They threw them into the water and they just went nuts. We saw so many different types of crocs too and learned all about each one’s back-story as well as many facts about their species. We feel like experts now! We saw African Nile crocs, Dwarf crocs, Long- nosed crocs, baby crocs and even a couple alligators all the way from America. The guide fed each one, and we never got sick of seeing them eat the whole, feathered chickens.DSCN0052 DSCN0056 DSCN0057 DSCN0063 DSCN0075 DSCN0077

After our tour, we each got to hold a baby crocodile. They were only about 1-2 years old, so they were very small. We were all really nervous at first, but it was so cool! It’s a lot softer than you might expect actually! That was surprising. We even made more friends along our tour too!DSCN0085 DSCN0088 DSCN0092 DSCN0095 DSCN0100 DSCN0081

It’s very different going from a big group to a small group, but I think we’ll all be getting to know each other very well this week. I’m so excited for tomorrow and for the rest of the week!!!DSCN0106

Life advice: Don’t wheel your wheelchair into the croc infested waters! All the best!
