Note: A small handful of Nerf guns and ammo are already loaded to keep the kids entertained as you explore. - Learn about local agriculture and food sovereignty while pressing and binding garden salad seed paper journals. Messy hands and big smiles happen here! - Snack on freshly baked Caribbean patties and fruit. - Capture social media worthy photos of a local cave as well as beautifully unobstructed ocean views. - Enjoy a beach away from the downtown crowds. Sanitized goggles, floaties and swim toys available for your enjoyment.
