Pictures from my Daughter's school trip to "Animal Farm"
This trip to Animal Farm in Hanover was worth every moment of my time, and I am positive it was the same for the other 25 or so pre-school children and their parents.
Of course, I was a proud Dad with my daughter. I don't get a chance to spend as much time as I'd like with her at home, so I try to make it really special when I do get a little time.
Animal Farm is nestled deep in the hills of Hanover, a parish (like State) in Jamaica. The road was narrow, windy and rocky to get there, but we forgot all that when we reached.
The teacher (Aunty Corina) had briefed us that we will be seeing a few animals and herbal plants, but I never figured we would have seen the array and variety we beheld!
- Chickens/Fowls (Numerous varieties!)
- A few Snakes (The Jamaican Boa)
- Parrots (The Jamaican Black Billed and the Yellow Billed)
- Ducks- many varieties!
- Herbal Plants- A wide array!
- Scores of other species of birds [Honestly, I forgot the names]
- and of course lots of Coconuts! We were treated with fresh coconut water just before we left.
My only dissapointment was that for the first time, my camera would not function as expected, but I tried my best to take a few pictures- so I could take back to share with you.
Bear in mind too, that the animals were caged behind mesh houses (understandably) and so that did not give us a perfect shot.
Again, the quality may not be 100%, but I hope they give you an idea of our experience.
