First Day Fun!

We had a great start to our trip and landed in JAX last night around 4. We went to Target, grabbed some things we needed and got some yummy custard. To begin our day, we had breakfast with the other group here and packed our sack lunches for the day. Soon after, we headed out to the work sit. With it being rainy, we did some spring cleaning in a historical building. After that, we headed to an old plantation and explored a while and then went to the beach for our lunch break. Our helper/boss Ranger Allison brought gloves and trashbags for our beach clean up, and we spent the rest of the day cleaning up debris along the shoreline. There were many cacti that stuck to EVERYTHING, but we soon learned to watch our step. We are done, and sunburned, just waiting on dinner! I can’t wait to see what we can help with tomorrow!!

First day of the trip!!

To begin our day, we had breakfast and packed our lunches for the day. In the morning it was raining so we did some spring cleaning in a historical building. After that we headed to an old plantation and explored for a while and headed to the beach for our lunch break. Since the weather cleared up, Park Ranger Allison then gave us gloves and trash bags and we cleaned up debris from the hurricane along the shore line. A few of us saw some wildlife, like turtles and lots of plants we don’t have back home. There were a TON of cacti which stuck to everything, but we soon learned to watch our step. Dinner is being prepped soon and I can’t wait to see what we will be doing tomorrow!
