Garbage Clean-up on El Magote

Wednesday was the day of the bonfire and the garbage clean-up on a beach across from La Paz. The garbage clean-up started as walking around looking for garbage, then it turned into a race and finally it was just plain fun. Seven kids collected seven big bags of garbage. The bags were stuffed to bursting.

After that we built up a huge bonfire and roasted hotdogs and marshmallows. My friend, Holly and I went swimming in our clothes but nobody else did. We were on a peninsula so we got to swim in the ocean. Soon the bonfire died down so all the kids had to rake it and collect dry wood.

After that we motored home in our dingy.

Wow Maia, that sounds like a fun day. It is nice to feel that you did something good while having fun with your friends.

I used to love roasting marshmallows when I was younger. I loved toasting the outside, eating it, then toasting the rest of the marshmallow again. :)

I'm looking forward to your next post. Have a great day or week.

Lots of Love,
Auntie Lynne
