Here are some random pictures I have taken lately that haven't had a chance to make it onto the blog yet.
Here is the Disney cruise ship that pulled into Basseterre awhile ago. We had another one here yesterday, probably around the same size as this Disney ship. They never stay very long, usually only for the day.
A few weeks ago our neighbors, who are also Ross students, were caring for a baby goat that was almost totally blind. I'm not sure if we ever learned exactly where it came from, but they were housing it in their yard and feeding it since it had trouble eating on its own. He was soooo cute, you could hear his little cry when he got up in the morning, and when you went over to visit him, he loved being close you.
He stayed in this crate in the yard. If you went into his yard and ran around, he would hear your movements and get all excited, and he would jump up and down and run around too. It was adorable.
He finally found some students who wanted to keep him as a pet, and even take him back to the US with them when they return, so he is no longer staying with our neighbors. But we really enjoyed having him as a neighbor, even if for a short time.
And yes, another sunset picture. I know I post alot of these, but I can't help taking pictures when the sky looks like this!
And to change things up a bit, I'll add a sunrise shot too
There are 2 dogs that live nearby our apartment complex, and during the day, their owners let them out and they wander the neighborhood. And apparently, our apartment complex has become a favorite hangout spot. But this is fine by us, these dogs are super friendly, and it is nice when we arrive home and they are there to greet us at the car door with tails wagging. They also enjoy checking out Abban and Lladra when they are out on our balcony/roof.
The lighter of the two, the brown dog, is named Einstein. I'm not sure of the other dog's name. But Einstein has even met Abban and Lladra face to face when we took them outside on their leashes for a walk. Einstein loves cats, and just wanted to play with them. The cats weren't scared of him, but definitely didn't want to play. Here is Einstein hanging out in front of our apartment while Lladra looks on from the roof.
And finally, more island animal pictures. First, a whole herd of goats that we passed the other day in the road on the way to Joleigh's birthday party. The picture was kind of taken far away, but you can still see all of the goats in the road.
Next, a giant pig we encountered one night last week. No, not Wilbert. There are alot of wild pigs just wandering around parts of the island. And I think this was a definite first for all of us....as we were leaving a bar, we noticed something large rooting through the trash nearby in the parking lot. As we got closer, we realized it was a giant pig! Only in St. Kitts can you come across a pig munching down on old food scraps in the parking lot of a bar!
And finally, more monkeys!!! We also encountered these guys on the way to Joleigh's birthday party. Definitely more fun to take pictures of monkeys in the wild rather than in enclosures at the San Diego Zoo!
