Day 9

The day started with a team breakfast and beach recovery games. There were lots of laughs and the girls were excited for the day ahead.

We were lucky enough to be taken on a little tour of the island on the way to the school where we ran a netball clinic. Our bus driver Larry pointed out key landmarks on our trip up the west coast including Kensington Oval, Rihanna's penthouse and Sandy Lane golf course. We then headed inland through the mountains where the scenery went from open fields

to almost jungle like forests. When we came out the other side at Cherry Tree Hill we had the most amazing view of the east coast. 

We soon arrived at A. Dacosta Edwards Primary School where the children were eagerly waiting our arrival. After warming up with octopus, we split into groups and began taking the girls through some netball drills while the boys sat watching unable to join in because in their words 'we don't play netball'. Before long our girls were also organising games of tunnel ball and Tepees and Indians for the boys. It was an amazing experience for our girls and one we'll never forget. When it was time for us to go, the kids were clinging onto everyone's legs and asking us to stay forever. I think a few quite gladly would have!

Back to Bridgetown where we had a look around the main sites before heading back to the hotel.

This evening we challenged the girls to a Masterchef competition for dinner - room v room. The girls were given a budget and took up the challenge with enthusiasm and positivity. Chicken and salad, spaghetti bolognese, beef stir fry and veg, rice noodles and veg; just to name a few. One group even made their own bechamel sauce from scratch. I'm sure they'll all be happy to reproduce the dishes on their return!

Without a doubt, the girls have commented that this has been the best day of the tour.
